WORK IN PROGRESS - Horse by FranEvans

Currently unavailable for purchase

I’ve just started this today. I have no more commissions, so I thought I’d try something a bit different. I’ve painted horses before, but full bodies in a landscape. I’ve always wanted to do a ‘mug’ shot. I don’t suppose this will sell, but I intend to have copies laminated and take them to our local horse riding stables with a ‘commission a portrait of your horse’ label on them! Acrylic on canvas – 30 × 40cms

    I’m sure it will bring plenty of commissions Fran, this is great! Can’t wait to see the finished item!

  • Thanks Maree, I’m enjoying painting this so much, as I’m not panicking about deadlines!

    How beautiful! Its not an easy subject to paint…I liked to draw them years ago :)

  • Thanks a lot Ellen, it’s the first close up of a horse I’ve attempted. Hope it turns out OK!

    This is going to be beautiful & a really great way to market your work. You may get more commissions than you can handle…….I can see you looking up some recipes right now (to keep you in the kitchen & prevent you from getting to the paintings…ha!)

  • Thanks Marsha! I was supposed to go out today, but can’t because of the snow and we’re expecting more. Dinner’s out of the freezer for tonight, so I’m going to work on it all day. (I think) Just looked at your latest dog portrait again. It’s really excellent!
