Horse Portraits, Ace


This is a birthday commission for a birthday very near Christmas. This is Ace, I had the privilege of meeting Ace at the Huntley School of Equitition to take his photographs. Ace is 15 years old and he is a stunner, mainly white and pale grey but covered in darker grey freckles all over, he really stood out amongst the horses I saw. Ace is a gentle giant, I'm not much of an expert with horses and they do make me err on the side of caution, but Ace was very placid and more interested in gobbling up as much grass as he could rather than show me any attention which definitely put me at ease. Ace posed for many photos and he is a proud looking horse so a head and shoulders portrait will do him justice.
So far I have spent about 4 hours ensuring everything is in proportion and starting work on the eye area and bridle.

I like to watch work in progress, I love to draw horses, and I like working on the eyes, so your posting is very interesting to me...it's beautiful even though barely started.

Oh I am so looking forward to this one! Dogs and horses - my absolute favourite animals.
