Was going through a few of my photo's and came across the photo's that I took in October 2011 when visiting an open garden in Maleny (Maleny is about a 30 minute drive from where I live). It is a lovely garden which has actually now opened up as a botanical gardens (http://www.malenybotanicgardens.com). So how did I end up with horse reference photo's? Well the neighbouring property had horses and they seemed rather curious to all the comings and goings so naturally I took photo's of them. I did also take photo's of the gardens and will probably use some of them as reference photos in future landscape paintings.
Wasn't sure on what title to give my painting. I think horses are such beautiful animals so eventually settled on "Brown Beauty" as the title. The painting measures 6 x 6 inches on Ampersand Gessobord.
