This is Rociero click on his name to see the full sized image.  Luckily I had some amazing photos to choose from to use as reference for this painting.  The client had a professional photo shoot of her horse only the previous year.  If anything, there were too many to choose from.

Grey Stallion Painting

Having the black ground makes the greys and white colours stand out giving it great depth.  This painting was commissioned in an aperture size of 12″ x 16″ which is the perfect ratio for a horse head and shoulders portrait. A smaller size can sometimes be achievable, but it will depend on the photograph, but ideally 12″ x 16″ and above is better.
