Against the Wind by Dara Daniel Painting 30.0 x 30.0 :: The subject for “Against the Wind” is a lovely warm colored Bay horse with a black mane and tail. Inspirational for creating this piece was the stance of this horse as the horse seems to be enduring the elements. I always admired the toughness and adaptability of horses. To begin this painting I first applied layers of molding paste and an Acrylic binder mixed with sand and mortar to create lots of texture. For me the layers of texture give this piece substance depth and atmosphere. There are various tones of iridescent antique gold to finish this painting with hints of warm colors on the horse and cool colors in the foreground. :: Type: Painting Medium: Acrylic Style: Contemporary Subject: Animals Tags: equine textured horse neutrals modern expressive Width: 30.0 Height: 30.0 Depth: 1.5 Weight: 7 lbs Framed: no :: All art on Zatista is original and signed.
