The Battle by altergromit The Battle by altergromit
I loved to play with this picture, an unusual composition I had in my mind since a long time....
I drew inspiration from the composition of the very famous "Battaglia di San Romano", ---> [link] a Paolo Uccello's painting I saw in Florence (Galleria degli Uffizi) and I always loved. ...Of course my pic is different, my *goal* was about doing something with these kind of spears...
Thanks to :iconshoofly-stock: for his wonderful stock ---> [link]

Talking about the painting you can see in the link (it is a very famous painting) probably it was about a war... :(
...Mine is a simple attempt of *mixing lines and colors* thinking of that painting... ...and in this case the horses are fine! ;)
Thank you, also for the fav! :D :hug:

It is a funny thing... ...When I start with this pic, I was thinking I could put *chess-horses* instead of regular horses in my picture; but because of the very *motionless* of that, I decided for the *common* horses... ...But thank you very much for the comment and fav! :D :hug: :glomp:

I went to organize my latest favorites and it wasn't in there (I have a separate wallpaper collection-folder), so I went to check and the fave had not taken. I took care of that!!

I wouldn't have minded to see more horses but you have really grasped the concept of the original (in my view). I like the 'abstractionism' of this picture. Beautiful work Anna ;) :hug:

...Thank you Ton!! ...Forgive me, I don't understand: do you mean you think there are not horses enough?... ...Well, maybe you're right, but I was *afraid* thinking it would be too much too!! :giggle: ...Ok, hard to explain! :blushes: :giggle: ...Thank you so much for the comment and fav, always appreciated!! :D :hug:!
