This is an 8x10 alkyd on hardboard panel. This is the first home-made panel I've worked on in a long while. It is a real pleasure to work on after the multimedia board and canvas I was using lately. The paint just glides on so smoothly!
I don't know anything about this horse, breeding, age, ect. but, my guess is he is an older animal and possibly a quarterhorse or QH cross. The photos I have to work from are pretty poor, and, I have had to flip-flop and play jig-saw puzzle to get this layout, but, my client is happy with the intial drawing and is aware that the photos are not the best quality to work from. This is a work in progress and these are photos of the intial sketch, and the first day of drawing onto the board and painting.
