Leo campdrafting

For Sale

This is one I've done for my exhibition. The reference photo is courtesy of WildFillies photography.
Campdraft 1
 30 x 40cms image size
Framed oil
 I wanted it to be colourful and fun but still look like the horse Leo who is a very versatile little horse who hacks , campdrafts and does dressage! I haven't gone to as much detail for a likeness of the rider as I would in a commissioned portrait.I just wanted the overall effect.

 The framed painting.

Here he is in the earlier stages.

Above -  I've done the general shapes and gone in and almost finished off Leo. I don't usually paint like that . I usually paint all the painting to the same level at once.
 I've painted the cow in roughly. The original cow was black but I wanted some extra colour so changed it to a Hereford.

 Here I've painted the rider and decided I wanted the cow to be a bit lighter.The finishing touches were to get a more accurate expression on Leo and adjust the background and dust and a few other little details.
