Horse (challenge)

Hi guys. I've been working on a pastel for a while so no scratchboards recently but here's the progress shots of my horse that Eilybaby requested for the swap/challenge

Original reference was my own

5x7

This is with the background scratched off and the horse nearly done


Watercolour for the horse


Oil paints for the sky and bushes

Re: Horse (challenge)

I was able to guess your piece because of the background as well. Very cool!!

Re: Horse (challenge)

Thanks guys Actually, this is the fourth background I've done like this so I was thinking I'd be guessed more. Allan would have guessed if he'd tried (grrrr ) because he has one of mine with a background a bit like this.

I'm also in the 'bad choosers' category. I had you down for another couple of choices. Cool piece...

Nope! I'd never have thought this was yours Patrick - thats for sure. Looks like he was talking to you when you took the pic. Good job I especially like the way you did his mane
