Challenge Image #352 Study of Brave's Face before Connecting.

As you all probably know by now I am painting a watercolor this week that is to be included in a book about the Sand Wash Basin Wild Horses.  I am Collaborating with Photographer Joe Tosh of Colorado on this one.

"Study of Brave"
6 by 6 inches Watercolor
by Linda L Martin Artist
Joe's action image is so awesome that I decided to do a special study of  Brave's face just before he was about to connect teeth to hide of the horse he was chasing away from his band. Brave is a very stocky and formidable and certainly a force to be reckoned with when it comes to protecting his band. I don't think Ive ever seen, either in life, or in photography a stallion with a mouth that opens quite that wide. And it really shows the bravado of the little bachelor stallion who challenged him.

Tomorrow the close up of  Apache in the painting and information on  how you can pre-order the new book by Patrick Brennan,  Joe Tosh and John Wagner on Friday.
