Sometimes you don't need a background at all! For example look at these horse portraits. (If you can't see that website, let me know; I can take a screen capture of the page to show you.) Some portrait artists even add a mute ("blurry"/not very detailed) background to help direct attention to the subject. After all, you don't want your viewers to be looking at the background and not the horse!

a simple line will suggest the horizon or smudge underneath makes a good shadow.
