A Good Team.

This was painted from an old family photo. I was attracted to the hazy atmosphere, the colors and the stance of the horses, especially the turned head of the horse on the left. I used a limited palette of cad red medium, burnt umber, white and black. I rarely use black but it worked well here. Painting this one was a joy. I don't know who took the photo, but I think I have Grandpa Wayne to thank for his team. Just hear those sleigh bells jingling ring ting tingling ....
