Your horse images are gorgeous, but I think this one popped out at me while going thru your gallery.
Just beautiful colors, tones and lovely composition. Stunning.
Do you do any portraiture with your wacom paintings? I sure could use some help or advice if you have any. thanks and keep shooting such great images! #4476565

Hi Mary. Thanks so much for your very kind comments. I love the wacom but have never done portraiture. I'm just learning and struggling and have only done a few horses. I too could use advise but guess overall it's just me and the tablet. Thanks again.....Karen #4476952
