A posthumous horse portrait of ‘Benson’

‘Benson’

Oil on panel 10 x 8 ins

Posthumous paintings are always a little more tricky to do. It is essential in most cases to meet the subject one paints in order to achieve the character, mood and something of the personality of the animal in question. In the case of a landscape, depending on the elements, one sets out to capture the atmosphere of the view.

The client who commissioned this painting is from East Anglia, and after seeing my work on Facebook asked me if I would paint her beloved horse that passed away sometime ago.
