Ask Dillon - Thoroughbred Racehorse Horse Portrait painting by Andrew Hunt
(Acrylic on board) Commissioned by four members of a racing syndicate for a fellow member's birthday. Ask Dillon is a seven year old bay gelding, whose Sire is Ask and Dam is Mum's Miracle, and winner of two novice hurdles. With the initial enquiry, my client had just a few existing photos as possible reference. However, none of them really did Ask Dillon justice, and so with some guidance on how to approach the shots from myself, they were able to organise for the racing stables to take some extra photos - they came back with some great images, which gave me all I needed to capture just what a fine horse he really is.
Client's response: "...the impressive painting is proudly displayed on Mark’s wall, thank you." Marc
