Down at the Old Corral

21.5" x 25.5"

This painting is nearly monochromatic but as usual, light and shadow play the major role. My focus was trying to capture the beauty of reflected light and color-i.e., the sunlight strikes the corral’s floor bouncing and reflecting onto the underside of the horse as well as the blue of the sky being reflected in the leather of the saddle and the cowboy’s apparel. With proper values, exaggeration can effectively enhance a painting. In addition, the fence rails and their strong shadows establish a powerful rhythm to the composition.
