"Holly" Drum Horse Mare Watercolor Painting by Elizabeth Zimmerman of Western Rose Studios



"Holly

12" x 12" 
Watercolor, 2015


I do love going out to HyTyme Drum Horses and visiting with them, especially in the heat of summer. I go after work and arrive about 2 hours before sunset and it's cool there, with the warm smell of horses.

This is Holly. She is the mother of Epic. Holly is a little bit smaller than the other Drum Horses, but just as beautiful. The sun is low and she is gently backlit by dusk while finding crunchy grass in the middle of summer.

This painting is one of many that I created for my 2015 Solo Art Show: Western Gold.


Thanks for looking!
