Wild Horses on Sable Island by Netta Pickering

Wild Horses on Sable Island

These horses are wild and live on Sable Island, Nova Scotia. I got permission from the Green Horse Society to paint this picture. I love the sea in the background and the seals and seagulls on the far beach.
Soluble oils on watercolor paper.

I had a hard time with the tree shadows. Does anyone have any ideas about tree shades looking natural?
