Bet & Gambler


Here is the double horse portrait completed - a pair of carriage horses apparently. This has been painted/drawn using Derwent Drawing Pencils and acrylic bodypaint. Although enjoyable, this picture required a lot of preparation as it involved several photographs of various sizes and clarity which had to be made into one composition as well as correcting the 'wobbly lip' on the left hand horse.

It has now gone on it's way with a happy customer, so I must have pulled it off!

So I can enjoy a day off before starting on the next horse - a slightly unusual looking fellow which should be a lot of fun to do.

I can't leave a comment on here as I am very bias anyway :-)
I love the horses, horses like me.... but they are also alot bigger than I am so they tend to invade my space when near me. :-)xxx It makes sense to me :-)
