I am sure Grace will love this painting of a horse, and so do I. I especially like the motion in the mane, and also how lovely the light is falling on the horse. You have also brought the fine textures of the skin of the horse, and your use of high lights is excellent.

Your brush work is bold but precise, and I can see that you have paid very good attention to details.

The tight framing is perfect and the horse is well placed on the canvas. Indeed a lovely and well done painting Lucas.

Comment from Christine Rohr


Lucas,
This is beautiful. You have a real talent. I don't know if all you do is paint but the results are worth it. I love the brush strokes in this portrait of a horse and the directionality it give to the fur. The forelock highlights are beautiful. Horses eyes are already soft and this horse artfully exaggerated.
Beautiful animal portrait.

The colours are beautifully blended giving a warming feeling to the horse... Love the colours in the mane and through the muzzle ... This is a very nice painting.. well done

I think you got a good likeness of the photo. I am especially impressed how you captured the moving hair of the mane and the light reflection in the eye and on the body. The light and colors are fine and the proportions and perspective correct. I am not sure of the middle of the forehead and nose. It looks as if there is a carve in between the nostrils.

This has great movement and is,alive! So realistic and an excellent tribute to Envisions Madamoiselle. I love the way you have caught that knowing look in the eye. The brush strokes are wonderful.i find oil difficult but I don't give up and I can see you skill here using that medium.
