The Dartmoor Foal

Beautiful as ever Jeannette but I think you may have made a "freudian slip" here! I think the foal is cute not foul. LOL I'll put it down to an intellectual intermission!! This is a perfect painting for a little girls room.

Oh' dear Val. I couldn't stop laughing when I read your comment. I edited the picture and still spelled it wrong typing Fole!!! I think it's a senior moment? All OK now. Not so sure about me though!

Alls well that ends well!! I think.

Congrats on the final spelling...you got there in the end! The Dartmoors are my favourites, sturdy little creatures, and this is a lovely painting of them...very typical feeding stance of the fole/foul/foal...you've got me at it now! It is exactly how they brace themselves to tug when drinking. Lovely.

Stunning Jeannette, the mare has a look of resignation on her face, nothing to do with the spelling I trust. lol

What a beautiful painting, inspires me to have a go with pastels - I've never used them before. Love the grey of the mare against the pinky sky.

lovely image Jeannette....Good use of colour...Steve.

Lovely colours and I like their furry coats!

Great little picture, bet your grandaughter loves it.

You have their character perfectly

What a lovely scene and how beautifully you have captured the moment. It certainly helped that the mother was a gray and the foal was dark as you were able to get some really effective edges. Like the misty background.

Lovely composition Jeanette, wonderful background too.
