Horse in watercolour (and harness racing)

Thornton Jag
Large watercolour on Saunders Waterford NOT paper

A horse for a change! This painting was completed as a commission for a customer/friend of mine as a Christmas present a few years ago but I thought it would be nice to share something a little different. How lucky we artists are that so many of our customers become our friends, and often very, very good ones too. This was quite a complicated painting with a huge amount of fine detail but I am pleased with the finished result as was Sandy Platt of the famous Charbonnel Cocker Spaniels who commissioned it.

Baby Blue Eyes - Dalmatian Puppy Painting

Baby Blue Eyes - 5" x 7" oil on hardboard/masonite


This little lady was painted as a companion piece to Bubbles. Her name is Santorini and like Romeo, the model for Bubbles, she is owned by Dee Dee Lancelotta. I love the way her pink collar so perfectly compliments her pretty blue eyes.
