Latest Commission - Ru

This is Ru, a gorgeous chestnut mare who was a pleasure to paint! The size of this painting is 12x16" and I worked from a photo taken by myself which allowed me to incorporate a high amount of detail. Please click on the photo to see all the strokes making up the fur and colours in the coat.

Amazing quality and detail in those paintings. The arcylics look like oil paintings, never managed the same success myself. Hope you get lots of commissions.

Thank you! It's taken me many years to get to this stage with acrylics so they really are worth persevering with.

Hah, I'll have to go back to the drawing board then(!)

I think I've been to hasty with dismissing the acrylics, but I guess years of practice are the key.
