Posts Tagged ‘pale horse’

The Pale Horse is still a work in progress.  His rider will be a skeleton.  The Pale Horse’s rider is named Death so I painted not only the horse with the green tint of decomposition (see the Medical Examiner blog), but the grass dying as he rides over and near it.  The orange is the base of Hell which follows.  There will be a mystery embedded here when it is complete.

This is the second horse I painted from The Four Horsemen scene.  Although the canvas is 4 feet by 4 feet, I thought that painting him in the center would surely give room for distance and perspective but I was wrong.  He will not be as far back as I originally calculated.  There will be a blog to follow about the meaning of the horse’s related to time and their significance.  The Pale Horse’s time is coming, maybe closer than I was originally thinking.  It may have been meant to be this way. (CLOSER) 

Please note the color is off here.  The horse is actually greener than it appears here.  I am still working on this horse.  I have taken the “hump” from his neck behind his head in order to show more of his skeleton rider.  I like the eyes, they are from the original attempt of the horse’s face when I did not realize hors’e eyes are on the sides of their heads, not the front.

From the front perspective looking at the horse, the right eye is darker as it is in decomposition.  Some of the green hue is seen here.  The horse will have a human hair mane and tail-blond with green highlights.
