I just another horse portrait painting. This is a remake of the mini painting I did last month. The owner of the horse saw the mini painting on my Facebook page and loved it so she commissioned me to do a larger version. I really enjoyed painting this horse, even painting him twice! He has such a nicely shaped head, lovely expression, and I really like the way the light falls across his face and neck.
