My concentration as of late has been strictly equestrian subjects. Mainly, the gorgeous Andalusians, Friesians and Lusitanos. Their unique body structure, personalities and overall strength and gracefulness is not only awe-inspiring but art-inspiring. I have had an absolute dream painting these magnificent breeds and can not wait to jump into more this summer.
This handsome devil I met in Grayslake, Illinois at an amazing dressage exhibit. I loved his calm demeanor and his proud gait. This guy was so much fun to paint and I kept my palette limited to grays and neutral browns to accentuate his "blingy" attire.
