Wanno - Dutch Warmblood Horse Portrait painting by Andrew Hunt
(Acrylic on board) Wanno is a lovely-looking 10 year-old Dutch Warmblood, well-suited to her owner's interest in dressage.
The owner's response: "I received my painting as a Christmas gift. It was perfect. Andrew has perfectly captured Wanno's facial expression and every muscle in his body. It simply could not be any other horse in the world! I am thrilled." Lisa ________________________________________________ The finished painting was based primarily on one image from a set of photographs supplied by the client. However, I was particularly interested in two images from the set (see below, top and bottom left images), which both held strong potential, and so composed two alternative mock-ups for Lisa to choose from, as shown below. For the layout that Lisa chose, she preferred it to be painted without the bridle included, so I also referred to an additional photo of Wanno with just a lead collar on (see below, top right), which unlike with a bridle & bit, doesn't pull his mouth out of shape. I've also shown the 2nd mock-up I produced - see below, bottom right.
