"MILLIE" 87/101 OF 101 PET PORTRAITS IN 101 DAYS © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

"Millie" is sister to Bailey in my 101 Pet Portraits in 101 Days.  Their pet mom is Carol Crowder.  With Millie I stayed bright with burnt oranges and yellows.  The dark areas are the purples.  Millie also has a bit of a large negative space as I mentioned with Bailey, so I used the stamping of the honeycomb design to break up the negative space and give it a bit of pattern; which gives it the illusion of more texture.  This adds interest to this fauvist depiction of this beautiful horse!

It was not important to me to give a photo realistic view of Millie's bridle...to give an impression of a thing is often more powerful...this was also so with Bailey.  I wanted to focus on Millie, and to have given a realistic version of the bridle would have taken a little away from her since it is on her face...thus my decision.  

Millie in her display glory!  The easel I found at Hobby Lobby, and the frames I purchased through pictureframes.com.  I'm not thrilled with their shipping prices, but if you watch you can get deals; it shows in the upper left corner.

Bonsoir chère amie,

Un très joli portrait que celui de ce cheval.
J'aime les couleurs vivifiantes qui l'animent.
Les différents encadrement que vous nous proposez sont tous en accord, mais s'il fallait que je fasse un choix je crois que je choisirais le cadre noir.

❀ Gros bisous ❀

Merci mon ami. Je suis d'accord que le cadre noir se passe bien. J'utilise beaucoup de couleurs fauves pour ce grand projet !
