Freisian Horse Portrait

Freisian painting

The Friesian (also Frizian) is a horse breed originating in Friesland, in the Netherlands. I have seen them during horse shows and just love how these horses look. The original photo reference send by my client had a child in the picture. My client requested that I not paint the child and just show the majesty of this beautiful horse.

This is a rather dark horse so the trick was to bring some life into the painting. I worked not only a lot of texture in but made sure that the foliage in the background was equally interesting as a backdrop and great contrast to the horse. 

The end result is the painting below . If you like to learn more about ordering a similar portrait click below.
