Oil on museum quality Ampersand Gessobord panel
8" x 10"
This painting has a lot of presence for its diminutive size. I was happy with the movement of the Percheron cantoring around the ring, his mane blowing in the breeze. One can almost feel his large hooves kicking up dirt and gravel. I had forgotten just how challenging painting a portrait the size of a dime can be. I have new found respect for Jean-Léon Gérôme.
