"The Battle" Oil painting by Charlotte Yealey

8x10
oil painting
This painting is something I have never done before-a war scene but this is not an actual war just a re-enactment captured by a photographer friend of mine, David Churchill. When he showed me some of the photos from the re-enactment he saw, I said I was drawn to the action of the horses so he said "paint it". I used his photo for reference but changed some things and has sparked a thought to create a series of civil war horses. I will be doing my research and try this new series.

I look forward to seeing the series. Research and study along with the series of paintings sounds fulfilling.
