Taking the air III

This is a mixed media painting of a couple of horses roaming around on Dartmoor in Devon, United Kingdom. First a thin layer of interference acrylic was put down. Normal acrylic was then used with a 'dry brush' technique to block in the main tonal areas. Finally fiber tipped pens were used to define the horse features and allowed the inclusion of some expressive lines.
The underlying interference color is iridescent which provides a subtle color shift when the lighting conditions or viewing angle of the painting changes. You can see the effect below.

Prints of this picture (without the iridescent effect) are available in a range of sizes (including colossal!) and papers just click the image below.
