Buddy - Appaloosa/draft cross Horse portrait painting by Andrew Hunt
(Acrylic on canvas) Buddy is an Appaloosa/draft cross, and as such has very distinctive markings - I've shown him in his winter coat, which is quite appropriate for his snowflake colouration.
The client's response: "I was amazed at how Andrew managed to capture the essence of Buddy in this portrait. This couldn't have been achieved without the time he spent with Buddy on a cold January morning in the snow, or without his superb attention to detail. This portrait will mean that a much loved old horse will always be a visible part of the family. Many thanks Andrew." Barry ________________________________________________ I love the strong individuality of Appaloosa markings - he really does look like he's been splattered with paint. Buddy was quite a character too, and quite a challenge to take photos of, as he was NOT going let me in his field to get close-ups - note the fencing in the photo below!
