Weekly Photo Challenge: Two Subjects

In this watercolor painting for the challenge “Two Subjects,” I have horses and snow.

Sam and Sally, watercolor, 11" x 14"

As a general rule, having two (unrelated) subjects in a painting is like having two stars in a play; they tend to compete with each other for top billing.  When deciding what to paint, I usually decide who (or what) is going to be the star and make the other images co-stars, or less emphatic.  Then all the elements tend to “play well together.”

    • I’m glad you like it so much! The original painting is still available on my website, or if you would like to buy a print, this one is listed at Fine Art America. The links to both sites are in the blogroll on the left side of the screen. But most of all, I appreciate you being an audience for my art!

    • Thanks. That was actually taken from a photo of an uncrowded day on the Severn River near Annapolis, Maryland. The banner doesn’t let all of the painting show. You can see the full version if you click on “Ruth Bailey’s website” in the Blogroll.

I'm interested in hearing what you think!
