Day 182

Chinese Horse after Lascaux, 4 x 4 inch oil on panel

In case you missed it, yesterdays post was about doing replicas of cave paintings this week, and what they mean to me. Today's painting is the "Chinese Horse" from the Lascaux cave in France. I was interested in trying to capture the textures of the cave walls, although it looks to me more like the horse is running in a landscape... but maybe that's what the original artist intended? 


  1. Another "like"...I wish I could find a horse on the rocks around here. So far, I've only seen the lizard. But awe inspiring anyhow.

  2. Kat, what a difference. It seems to have come out just like you'd hoped. It looks great.
