Horse Portraits, Ace




And here it is.... this is Ace completed. In case you have missed any of the previous stages either follow the links for Ace down on the right hand side or simply view my little work in progress video below.



I have just started work on Harry the golden retriever asleep on the stairs plus I have drawn out 3 other portraits to do. There are still 2 more I can draw out plus I have a few more commissions just awaiting photos. I think I am getting towards being fully booked up now, which is amazing as it's still technically October. It's a shame I work full time as I'd love to take on more, I'll see how things progress and maybe I could fit a few more in!

And other news....

Today was a day off from work, Willow was meant to be spayed yesterday but I had a pang of guilt and have yet to make up my mind fully so she has had a reprieve for the time being. Because of this, we (Willow, Zac and myself) went wandering around the woods today. I took my camera as the autumn colours are rapidly appearing and I think the leaves will drop almost straight away, however when I tried to take photos, yet again my batteries were flat (mine as well as the camera I think) so what a shame.... we will have to go again tomorrow! Also the clocks have now changed so the evenings are very dark and gloomy, it's still not 4pm yet and I have to put all my rabbits and guinea pigs to bed because it's getting darker. They will be most upset.

If you like my work please take the time to leave me a comment or become a follower. If you would like to win a pet portrait of your dog, cat, horse or any other pet please see my new competition. It costs nothing to enter, all you require is internet access.

Ace is absolutely beautiful Karie Ann. This portrait is inspiring me to try my hand at horse paintings - they are such magnificent creatures.
