I really need to come up with better, more poetic, names. But this way at least I know for sure which piece I’m talking about!
Stryker is a Thoroughbred colt, living the good life while he grows and trains and gets stronger. He’ll be racing someday.
Somehow, I didn’t post these! I have been practicing equine portraits with different media. These are both Breeze, from reference pictures taken seconds apart. The profile on the far right I did first, with ink pencils, the 3/4 profile in the middle right I did with watercolors supplemented with brush pens. I think the second one is better, personally. The lights and darks are better.
I painted some old riding boots, and they could be yours! I’m auctioning them off on Ebay. They are entirely decorative, perfect for a conversation piece, or the centerpiece at a race-day party, a polo match, or even just a horse crazy kid’s party.
