Wild (and Loose) Horses in Paintings by Elin Pendleton

Horses running free, horses in the wild, mustangs and horses at liberty captured in oil paintings and acrylic paintings.

"Morning Back Light" Time for acrylics again! This 11x14 painting was done from another of he morning ranch images, and is done in those wonderful acrylics. Even with the low humidity, I can continue to work with them, creating the luscious layers of color. Would you believe that this painting started out with a layer of dioxazine PURPLE and thalo BLUE under all those wonderful grays? It creates a sparkle that is just wonderful to see in "real life". I do so love backlit subjects, expecially when the light creates strong value contrast.

"Evening Back Light" One of the greatest things about living on a working cattle ranch is the photo opportunities that abound in the wee hours of dawn. I was able to get out of bed and head to the corrals for picture taking as that morning light came streaming across the valley, almost horizontal as it lit the horses and wranglers in their morning chores. With memories of knowing I was traveling on a trail used by Apache chiefs Cochise and Geronimo's people, I write to you in the evening of quite a memorable day! (And it is only Tuesday!) US $350.00 Contact Elin or
"Summer Tails" I saw this thoroughbred mare and foal at a horse ranch about five miles north of Lake Elsinore, and near Corona. The blue fences in shadow contrast so beautifully with the sunlit mom and baby. Original oil on archival board, 12 x 16 inches, US $ 650  Contact Elin or
"On Location, Mares" I spent one beautiful Thursday afternoon near this pasture of mares and foals, and quickly captured the feel of the laxy afternoon. Even horses can be done "en plein air". Original oil on canvas, 12 x 16 inches, US $ 375 Contact Elin or
Aerial Shoeing This is one painting I am very proud of. Why? Because it takes a routine subject for many horse owners and puts a totally different and new cast on it. I climbed up our water windmill tower and took the source material photographs for this painting, and I'm just really pleased with it. "Aerial Shoeing" is scheduled for exhibition at the Fall Show of the American Academy of Equine Art in Lexington. Original Oil on canvas, 12 x 24 inches, US $ 950 before the show, from the artist.
"Baby Paint" When the folks over at Walter Foster saw my "Baby Bay" painting, they asked if I could do one in acrylics, and make it a paint, to show how I paint foals. Not a problem! Here's the 12 x 12 acrylic that will be published in January 2005 showing this coloration in a tri-color bay pinto! Original acrylic, US $ 700 Contact Elin or
"Snow Serenade"    Here's a horse that's feeling the joy and pleasure of being let out to run after a snowfall.  All four feet are lifted off the snow in that fleeting moment of the gallop.  This painting has a beautiful back light, glowing through the snow and on the horse.  Original oil, 30 x 40 inches. US$ 2150 Contact Elin or

"Looking Back, Mare and Foal" For the book on painting Horses in Acrylics (out January 2005), Elin painted this 12 x 16 image of a mare and her foal to show the size relationships between them. Original acrylic, US $450
