"BEST OF FRIENDS" daily painter textured horse © Carol Nelson Fine Art


The National Western Stock Show is winding down in Denver, but I still have horses on my mind.

On this painting, I used a palette knife to texture the canvas surface with gel medium before I started painting.  Multiple layers of fluid acrylic washes create a richness and depth of color.

If you're in the Denver area this weekend, Jan. 21-23, stop by my booth at the Indian Market.  I will be in booth 218 in the Pavilion building. The Indian Market is held at the Merchandise Mart, 58th and I-25.
