Break Away - acrylic & pastel horse painting on paper by Carol Santora - 30" x 22"

Break Away

Image size: 30″x22″ – acrylic and pastel on Stonehenge printmaking paper.

The background was created using a brayer/roller. I drew the image with vine charcoal and rolled more paint on some of the image.  Next I began a layering process scumbling pastel (building layers of broken color on top of each other to create a texture) to select areas, and in some areas rubbed the color off, and applied different or more color on top.
