The “giftee” returned from abroad this month and received the stall plaque for her horse, Ekko–so now I can reveal what the horse looks like. This stall plate is different from previous ones in that it is a head portrait instead of the whole horse running freely. As an amusing side note, I had to recreate the tips of his ears for his portrait because they were missing in the original reference photo! I was particularly pleased at how well the background came out. It can be tricky trying to recreate in oil paint what a camera lens does so nicely–“bokeh”, or that lovely blurred effect. So, here you go–
Charm, showing off the only braids that will stay in her endless mane.
