Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Sketched from a photo, I then add the first layer with acrylics, then 3-4 layers of oil paints before filling in the finer details.

Is the piece for sale? Yes

What are you most proud of? I'm proud I managed to finish him, there where times when he nearly got put to the back of the pile. I'm proud I painted him rather large, 25x30" rather than on a small canvas.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep on, don't give up when things look grim

I love this ... and your advice, I so often get disheartened when I'm painting and simply want to give up

This horse reminds me of my grandfather. Regal, stoic, and proud.
