To begin "Feeling Free," I generously applied Acrylic molding paste to the entire canvas adding textures and shapes to complement the form of the horse. After that, I added layers of colors ending with shades of white and antique gold, keeping in mind that I wanted the subject to stand out but also blend in. Finally, I loosely added more colors to the foreground using vibrant violet, turquoises, and black to add more energy to the painting. Creating a sense of movement during my process was essential for this piece. Equally important was capturing the spirit of the horse.
