I think the composition and the lighting are both very interesting, but I can understand if you want practice doing real people.
Wow, that looks gorgeous, I love the lighting and the moon in the background! Thanks for sharing, I'll make sure to let you know if I use it. :)

Thanks! I'm one of those people who will take a million pictures of something in order to get one that's "just right." I wish I would have had a nicer camera with me though. I took it with my little $100 Canon. I'm sure you could blow up the photo I uploaded a bit before it gets too fuzzy to be useful, but let me know if you'd like to have me send you a larger version directly.

Thanks everyone for the references! I'm currently finishing up a painting I had started before making this thread, but I should be able to work on a new painting soon!

I'm definitely still looking for references if anyone has any other pictures of people or people with horses. A lot of the pictures so far are a bit too small for me to be able paint, so if possible, I'd love some bigger references. At least 1000 pixels wide would be great! I've tried painting people from small references before and it's very difficult if I can't clearly see small details like people's eyes, etc.
