Just completed my first Aquabord™ commissioned horse portrait. But I can’t post a pic of it just yet because it’s a surprise gift for someone and there are too many people who see my posts who know the recipient but don’t know she’s about to be gifted! I will say that it turned out super and that I’m finally getting enough control over this medium to feel like I can successfully pull this off. This portrait is tiny (5″ x 7″), just like all my previous Aquabord™ attempts, but it’s also the first head shot I’ve done as opposed to a pasture scene. So I had to handle the paint a little differently but it came much more easily than I thought it would. Hope to get the photo up soon…in the meantime, if you squint at this version, you can just sort of see a horse!
Charm, showing off the only braids that will stay in her endless mane.
