David's World

Here's a watercolour version of a snap of Dibby and me in the field yesterday. Dad says it reminds him of a favourite painting by Andrew Wyeth in 1948 called "Christina's World", which he saw in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Apparently, this was in the days before horses, when he could afford to go there.

Rising above such remarks, I would comment that most horses might assume the painting was in oils or even a detailed watercolour. This simple cob however would suggest that Wyeth's medium was tempura on a gessoed panel.
