Nyala - ex-race horse Horse Portrait painting by Andrew Hunt
(Acrylic on canvas)
As a thoroughbred, Nyala was always going to be a good-looker, and it was fortunate therefore that my client had some really clear photos, before finally losing her to a major illness. I was able to use these as good reference to produce the painting.
Client's response “The painting is fantastic! My wife cried as soon as she unwrapped it.... The loss is still a bit raw at the moment, but she loves it and can’t stop looking at it.” Rob Thorpe ________________________________________________ This lovely profile shot shows off her form really well. With the addition of a dramatic black background, careful cropping and additional shading, it makes a strongly graphic image.
