Bev Doolittle is an American artist working mainly in watercolor paints. She creates paintings of the American West that feature themes of Native American life, wild animals, horses, and landscapes.
Bev Doolittle said about the creation of this painting:
“I was observing a small group of chestnut horses in a grassy meadow when I became aware
that they were ‘observing’ me. This seemed like an interesting situation for a painting. I also thought it would be fun to have the horses observing you, the viewer, before you could find the horses! So I began to think of ways to camouflage them.”
“The varied abstract markings of pinto horses suggested to me patterns of snow against rock,
which seemed a natural solution for camouflage. The chestnut horses became ‘Pintos’
and the grassy meadow turned into a backdrop of rocks and snow.”
