Offsite Commission of two horses, Susie, a standardbred cross, and Charlie, a standardbred.
Someday, when I buy a horse, I swear the first consideration is going to standardbreds. The more I hear people talk about them and the more I draw them, the more I fall in love with the breed.
I was absolutely thrilled with the challenge on this one. I was given a specific background to do and I really pushed myself to replicate it. I was beaming when I finished those happy little trees. And dapples.. whenever I do dapples I am constantly struggling to keep them from eating the details. But I alway really like how the color looks.
This is the second George Stubbs inspired picture I've done, I have a few more in the works right now. I am really enjoying working on them.
As always critiques are more than welcome!
(For those interested I've posted some work in progress photos [link]
