Thanks:). No I don't I'm afraid. There is a book titled 'horses a portrait of the animal world' which this artwork was reference from;).

That's so funny! I used the EXACT same photo for reference on a graphite drawing!!
I think you did a better job at it though. At the very least you got the background to show up better by using paints.
My scanner completly ruined my background. :(

Great painting! Everthing's very well blended, shows great control. I love the highlights. You captured the beauty of the motion, and grace. :love:

Yeah it's a good reference:). I took a look a your version and it's quite good.
You may want to change to a digital camera, though it takes more time to set up the shot the results are far superior not to mention making it easier to document larger works:).

Thank you!
Yeah I already promised myself that unless it's my digital photography, which is downloaded onto the computer via my camera, my next hand drawn artwork will have its picture taken by said camera.

My "scanner" is now just going to be a copy machine for text.

Thanks:). The blue tinge occurred because of where I photographed the painting, outside on the veranda.

I`m envious! I photograph horses and do pencil drawings. I dabble in watercolor a bit, but I ... can never do this!

Thank you, I was told I had a poor drawing ability when I was 16. I came home and thought I'll show these bastards what I can do. The point I suppose I'm trying to make is believe in yourself and your already half way there:).

Absolutely amazing! So beautiful and life like. the depth, form and structure is perfect. You can really see the horses mass in a 3 dimensional aspect as apposed to just a 2 dimensional flat image.
