...and yet another new stallion portrait ...x post acrylics

As I said in my last thread, those stallion portrait commission are keeping me busy and I am forever so thankful for that.
This one is of a stallion called Alfred Nobel. The lady who commissioned me asked specifically to have him on a background like the Yeats painting I did, a dark blue-black. Just finished today and being varnished right now for handover later this week.

16x20 inch W&N Artist Acrylic on Ambersand Pastelboard
C+C welcome as usual

This was a tough one to photograph. The blue isnt as vibrant and overpowering in real life, so please ignore that.

"Chalk up" another winner, Kathrin! (Sorry about the joke, I couldn't help myself!) Its a stunner -his muzzle is exquisite. It looks like his head is coming right out of the picture frame, very 3-d!

Beautifully done, find myself drawn to the stallion's eye.

Awesome work Kathrin. The horse looks like it's glistening a bit, like it's been out for a run. Great eye.

This is awesome, eyeing it enviously. Would have never thought that such a background would showcase it so
