Acrylic impasto on stretched canvas.

8″ × 10″

How much presence does this little man have? Unbelievable. He really commands this painting in fine style and what a pleasure to paint such a stunning foal. The fluffy foal coat was a bit of a challenge as I’m so used to shiny coats but I really had a lot of fun working out the best technique to make him stand out.

His name is Watermark The Guardian (from Watermark Gypsy Cobs Stud in Australia)

    I like his soft, bright, fluffy coat; lovely eye too.

  • The fluffy coat was a bit of a challenge as I’m use to shiny coats lol…but he’s a beautiful boy and has brought me in a bunch more commissions for which I’m very grateful! The Guardian is watching over me lol
