Sparring Stallions at the Salt River

Last spring I watched two stallions chase each other and eventually have a short, yet dramatic sparring session. Although it was intense, neither stallion was injured. This is common behavior when stallions are trying to win a band of their own or steal mares from other stallions.

As I painted this, I wanted to communicate the energy and action with the dust and loose brush strokes.
