    Very well done...I like it !!!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Wonderful expression on the horse's face.. The whole work talks about liking the horses very much.

    So interesting! Never thought about sigs this way. I made a vid of this painting, the process, and quickly put the sig there mid-filming without thinking. Thanks for your comments.

    Thanks everyone for commenting - it means heaps! Glad you like it!

    That's so true. I used to ride as a kid and started drawing horses way back then. I'm not around horses now but it's a love and fascination that's never left me so I translate it into digital and acrylic art. Thanks AT-TA

    hildee.. very nice work.... I like the accuracy and details but still the marks that build up the painting show a painterly handmade quality with great skill..
