~ One of my recently commissioned pet portraits.
I loved painting this beautiful elegant horse, her lovely owner told me that she's full of character and fun loving and even sometimes a tinsy bit mischievous and vivacious.
I can see that she's also very engaging hence I decided to paint her
" face on ".
I thought long & hard about how to approach this pet portrait, I could have gone ultra minimalist but I also wanted lots of brushstrokes and character to the painting because of her lively personality, hence I ended up somewhere in the middle,.
A happy balance between simple and detailed and I'm very happy with the result.
