Stryker is a Thoroughbred colt, living the good life while he grows and trains and gets stronger. He’ll be racing someday.
The Akhl Teke is a breathtaking and exotic horse from Turkmenistan. It deserved an exotic rendering. Watercolor and inktense.
Had a lot of fun with this mixed media piece, employed inktense, watercolor, brush pen and paint pen to bring this little cutie to life.
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.
Starts out cleaning brushes, end up painting a page of flowers.
