Saddle Up

I came across a photograph on the Paint My Photo website which I couldn't resist. It is of the grandaughter of one of the artists there, climbing aboard her polo pony for some training.

So this rainy weekend I got stuck in to it.


I left off the logo from the back of the T shirt as I wanted that nice patch of sunlight to be unspoilt. I also substituted my Murphy for her dog as his colouring is a great match for the pony, then added a more abstract background to complete what I think has turned out quite a pleasant painting.
This is watercolour on Arches Aquarelle paper, 19 x 13 inches. I'll be framing it tomorrow in a pale natural wood frame and putting it for sale on the Mighty Fine Art website.
