Horse by Doris Cohen. Oil painting of horse. Horse paintings have always fascinated artists throughout the ages. In the ancient times it was predominantly horses in battle field action and in renaissance era and later, horse paintings with horses in meadows or in races were quite popular. Artist like Manet and Degas further popularized this subject. More often than not the subject of the paintings was the horse’s action rather than the horse itself. So, when the artist decided for a painting of a horse, it had to be the horse as a subject.

The white color horse was consciously chosen as the subject as it was felt that in order to portray the horse as a portrait, pristine colors had to be used. Another conscious effort was to not paint a well built stallion which would end up looking picture perfect. The idea was to paint a normal horse with a contrasting background to have a balanced painting.

As you can see restraint was used because the idea was not to paint a wild horse too. Dark and bright shades of receding green were used as a backdrop gently merging the colors to align with the white horse. The use of green also represents grass which plays quite a major part in a horse's life. This representative grass was thus used on the complete right side instead of just showing grass on the ground. Focus was kept on the face so that one could appreciate the beauty of the horse as a painting subject.

This soothing painting has been well received by horse lovers and will definitely be an ideal addition to any Horse lovers’ art collection. The colors chosen ensure it fits into any room décor with ease.
