I photographed this handsome Andalusian stallion at the MN Horse Expo many many years ago when the horse was first quite young and a much darker gray. Since I attend this horse expo very nearly every year either as an artist selling my equine artwork or merely as a spectator collecting reference photos so I've been able to watch this stallion mature and become more beautiful, and more masterful at his Spanish movements with each passing year.
What really drew me to wanting to paint this horse in this way was the compositional cropping and color elements. This piece is several years old at this point and is yet still one of my favorite horse paintings.
This is yet another horse that I have hundreds of photos of and I'm sure I'll be committing him to art again soon.
The original painting was watercolor pencil done on Arches #140 Hot Press Watercolor Paper.
