Andalusian Stallion In Spanish Tack
The original painting of this horse was done in watercolor pencil on suede board. I photographed this handsome fella at the Kentucky Horse Park a few years back when I was attending an event and was sharing an art booth with an equestrian sculptor friend. This stunning Andalusian horse was the main event for the weekend, showing off all his fancy Spanish and dressage moves.
I was totally enamored with him from the first moment I set eyes on him and I knew I would be painting him at least once.You might say I sorta became a stalker. I'd hang out beside the barns waiting for him to do his warm ups for the show. I'd photograph him going to the show, waiting for his turn outside and then returning to the barn. It wasn't until the very last day that I actually stayed indoors to watch him perform.And yes, he was spectacular.In the end I had well over 400 photos of him and truthfully I don't think there was an ugly shot of him in the bunch.
He is an equestrian artists dream horse.Obviously he's a beautiful stallion and at all times was he tacked up in the most spectacular gear. His mane and tail quite were thick and billowing and quite literally touched the ground. Yup total horse artist eye candy.
Though this is the first horse painting I've done of him I doubt it will be the last.
