Pueblo is a Strawberry Roan Appaloosa. This recently finished commission measures 14x18" and is painted with colored pencils on 4 ply mat board. The reference photos were taken by the client. Lighting and attitude were a challenge in this piece. I had to work closely with my client to develop an understanding of this horse, especially as I have never met her in person. The other challenge was photographing the art-something I need to take time out to learn properly!
Here is Maddy as she emerges from the page. She is a Christmas present for my client's husband who adores his kitty. Final dimensions will be 9"x12". Base price for 8"x10" commissions is $420.00. This price will increase to $450.00 in January. Pricing depends on size and number of subjects. Though unable to take on any more commissions due before Christmas, I will happily sell a gift certificate. If you purchase now you will be locked into current pricing.
