Arrow Call for Arabian Reference Photos!

I am trying to build a new portfolio to showcase my artwork to prospective schools, and I wanted to do some really stand-out work. One of my long-time wants has been to paint a large-scale work of a horse in the uncluttered style of George Stubbs.

Although I don't have any images of my work, here's an example of the style I want to exemplify (with my own stylistic additives, of course):



You can probably recognize the art easily enough, but not the name. He's pretty much the master of all things horse, hound, and English countryside.

Anyways, on to my request....

I need some clear photos of horses in profile (as the picture posted above) and I will use one (or many) of these pictures to base my work on. It will be a long time before it's completed because the canvas I plan to use will fill up most of a whole wall. If I can, I will take pictures to show some progress.

I'm not looking for any particular colours or special details, just well-conformed, clear pictures of arabians. In fact, even linking to photos that you know and love would be just fine.

Thanks for your time!

I also am always looking for good profile pictures of Arabians to draw/paint, I actually get about a pound of reference pictures every month in Arabian Horse World magazine. :) As for linking pictures on the internet, here are some of the best ones I've seen:

I recognize the horse in the second picture! I have one Arabian Horse World magazine in my possession... I bought it but was disinterested by all the breeding 'ads' (I was more interested in the section on Endurance) but now I have a use for it! Perhaps I shall subscribe as well.

Here are some from my Arab, Echo's, bloodlines.
The bay is Rashid Van Ryad (Echo's dad)
The chestnut is Echo Magnifficoo (Echo's great grandpa)
The chestnut with the long, wavy mane is Magnum Psyche (Echo's grandpa)

I'm excited to see your final painting!

I actually like the breeding ads because they usually have really good pictures. XD For some reason it's really hard to find pictures of Arabians online that are both large and good quality, but they're everywhere in Arabian Horse World. :)
