 Paintings

Gail Hought

I really enjoy the endurance horse and the settings they are in as a subject for my paintings. It gives me a wide range of compositions and colors.

I paint in a traditional style of layering the transparent paint. I choose the most transparent watercolors and layer thin coats over previously dry layers to get the colors I want. All parts of the paintings have many layers. Light colors will usually have at least 4 layers and black which is made by layering blues, purples, greens and reds, will have as many as 15 layers of thin paint. The layering gives the transparent watercolor a translucent quality. You actually see through the layers. If the paint is applied thick and just in one or a few layers it becomes opaque & dull. I paint on high quality 300#, 100% rag(cloth) watercolor paper. Most of the paintings are from my own photos and others are from customers.

If you are interested in one of the paintings that I have painted, or commission work, please give me a call. Gail Hought
