An oil painting of a white stallion in motion. This is part of a series of paintings using colour, shape and brushstrokes to depict movement, mood and spirit. I use the horse as my muse as it has such beauty and energy. I used Michael Harding Oil Paint for this painting as the pigments are really strong and the texture of the paint means I can use it straight from the tube without the need for adding medium. The original painting is 60x60cm. Limited Edition Prints are also available on my website - www.alisonstafford.com
I've never gotten the hang of painting in real life. Like if you give me a digital program and ask me to sketch something, I might be able to get something decent out. It's all because of the "undo" button I tell you, there's just no take-backs when it comes to putting paint down on paper so you have to really be very sure about what you're drawing and painting in when you're working with canvas and fabric!
