This is a 14 x12" oil on box canvas which is destined for a gallery xmas show if all goes well.
This dear little foal nicknamed 'littleman' was our first foal of the year, by racing stallion Selkirk. His young mother sadly passed away this week with a serious colic. As this little boy is destined for sale in December I thought I would paint his portrait to remember him by.
I have so far undercoated his head and body with a colour blocking layer. I have not done an underpainting this time, I didnt feel it necessary with such a small study.
