Pride–another of Billy’s barnmates. Original source photo by Mary Landry Decker Photography.

Taking a little time out from the Belgian pair to work on this little Aquabord™ commission. This photo was taken in a similar setting as the one of Spur which I did last December. The photographer is also the same, which makes me happy because she takes very detailed pictures and that always helps me out.

The background is complete, Pride’s muzzle needs a little more work, and of course the rest of his neck, chest and shoulder haven’t been touched yet. As soon as I finish his head, the rest should come fairly quickly. Looking to finish this in the next day or two.

    She/He ‘s beautiful, hope to see the finished work. I’d love to be a fly on the wall and watch you paint. Good day to you ~Scott

      Pride is a “he”–we joke around the barn that the only reason his owner has him is so she can hang a ton of bling on him! So I had to make sure I got all his rhinestones right LOL!

      You would be so-o-o bored as a fly on the wall in MY studio…progress is painstakingly slow, at least on the small horse portraits. A tiny brush on a tiny surface takes just as long, if not longer, than a big brush on a larger canvas. Some of my landscapes would be a lot more exciting to watch, such as the ones in the Michigan Orange group. That’s a wild fest of slapping on paint with a palette knife. Much more fun, kind of like an action sport!
