K. Henderson on YouTube

First, let me say that I'm better at painting than making slide shows but I finally got a slide show of my American Indian paintings on YouTube !

Not perfect, but not bad. Take a look, leave a comment and let me know what you think

Dreams Await - Paint Horse

Dreams Await
36" x 36" ~ oil on linen

Although I used to paint horses frequently, I rarely do anymore. I decided it was time again and this is the result.

Paint Horses are my favorite horses. I love the variety of coat patterns and coloring. And it seems to blend with various face paint used by the Plains Indian

Whispering Spirit - American Indian

Whispering Spirit is 30 x 40 oil on canvas.
When I begin each painting I create a brown underpainting. Glazes of color are then added to create a finished painting. In this painting I decided to keep the browns of the underpainting prominent by using layers of brown, white and red. The result is a fairly monochromatic painting which focuses on the strong features of the face.
This painting is available at K. Henderson Studio for the next few weeks.
