This is the reference photo I will be working on for my next commission. She is a beautiful show horse and will be painting in watercolor, 16x20".
The background will just be a light blue with minimal texture just to provide a bit of interest without taking the focus off of the subject. The tack will be included but without the hands and rider.
I have just started the sketch and am stretching the watercolor paper so should be able to start painting tomorrow.
