8" x 10" oil on canvas board
This was a horse that was showing at the Dixie National Rodeo a couple of years ago. I don't even know what kind of horse it is but thought he was pretty. I'm still working with the palette knife but just on the background - didn't have the courage to tackle the entire horse. I painted on top of a black ground and started to leave the background black but it looked like a painting on velvet that way so I decided to add the yellow background.
