The Foundling

16" x 20"
Oil on art panel

This was one of my first serious attempts at painting back in 2008. I thought if I kept it kind of monochromatic and just concentrated on shapes and values it would be a good way to practice those without having to worry too much about color.  The only thing in here that isn't black or white or shades of gray is the lariat hanging from the saddle.  I've often thought I'd like to paint this again, but making the horse a pinto with black and white breaking up the shape of the horse.  Wouldn't that confuse your eye!?!?!?!?
