Christmas is coming and I am extremely busy with portrait orders. I just finished this portrait of a young woman with her horse and thought I show it to you while I take a little break from painting.
With this horse I really concentrated on showing details in the dark area of the coat. The photo reference was nothing but darkness with a lot of back lighting. By bringing out the texture in the dark areas of the horse's body the painting takes on a more lifelike quality.
