Wow, those are amazing! The second one looks better than a photo with the soft lighting and personality that you've painted it with. The first one is fantastic as well, your attention to detail and use of color is perfect. :)

I feel bad saying any kind of critique for such a beautiful piece, but the cannon bone on his right foreleg looks like it might be a little thick, or it might be that the knee is a little low on the leg. Or maybe it's just me... either way both pieces are absolutely gorgeous! How long have you been painting horses?

I've been actively painting for about 5 years now, though only making "work" out of it for one lol.
I agree with the leg & I will definitely go back & touch it up once i've got the rest finished ;)

Here's a sketch i'm working on.
It's just about finished, the customer just has to decide whether he wants a background or not.

I can't get over how amazing your backgrounds are. They are just perfect!! They're my biggest downfall, I am just terrible at landscapes so it limits a lot of the work I can take on. Very jealous of your talent!

Thanks guys!
I'm getting better at clouds now that i've had so many people request them but I hated backgrounds at first. I especially don't like painting grass!!

Here are some prgoress pics. I've wanted to paint this picture for a while. I really loved this filly. Thinking back, if I had been smarter I would have asked my aunt if I could have her instead of breeding my mare!
