Equus

Michelle Detering's avatar Michelle Detering

A series of three mixed media encaustic paintings depicting the wild horses of the Camargue in France. With this technique layers of beeswax and oil paints are painted on top of photographs I took of the wild horses. The result is a sculptural type painting with a dream like quality. With this triptych I attempted to capture the strength, beauty and magic of the wild horse!
