1716 – THREE DARK PONIES AGAINST A DARK HEDGE
OIL ON CANVAS BOARD by Valerie Nerva
20” x 16” (50 x 40 cms)
sold with beech wood floating frame
Inspired by these afternoon visitors as I sat sketching by a forest stream. This is an exploration of the contrasts between the emerging horses and the sunlit ground, the pattern of open space between their legs. This painting has been done on canvas board and mounted in a floating wood frame with a yellow ochre shadow.
