This is a portrait horse that was painted for Emily Woodward (yay for notes!) and that I was actually rather proud of the way it turned out.

I did get better at the portrait models as I went along, but I was always petrified that I was going to mess them up. Doing a normal custom for someone is easy, a bay is a bay is a bay… but when it’s your bay, then it’s Bay with capital B.

In letters twenty feet high.

And on fire.

Did I mention I’m not planning on doing any more portrait horses? *sighs*

Looking back at it now, the tail could have been a little darker and she might be a tad too red– As an artist (and a bit of a perfectionist) I can always pick out flaws or things I wish I had done better, but Emily was happy with her and in the end that’s all that matters!
