View Full Version : Friends horse painted

This is another horse portrait that I did in Painter from a photo I had taken. Horses have been a huge part of my life, so you may see many in my posts.
The texture was added after Painter using a texture overlay in Paintshop Pro. I don't do this anymore, but was learning when I did this one and Twiggy.

Your horses have a wonderful sense of light- they almost glow.

Very nice.

Thank you Elaine. They do "shine" in real life! Well cared for. :)

Your works have an exceptionally traditional appearance to them, even the value range is closer to traditional than most digital work I have seen. That is extremely rare. Very nice work. I am trying to get my works to that caliber so I can reproduce one of my digital paintings faithfully in traditional media for sale of an original in a few local stores.

Wonderful color, light and shadow. I also like the texture which really adds to the background.

Thank you Delo, I do work as traditional as possible on most, I am self taught, except for the wonderful free tutorials I find online. I appreciate your kind remarks.
Thank you too, Arlene, I appreciate your comments!
