Elantra was my first horse commission! I was so excited to paint her, I have been wanting to paint a horse for quite a while now. Learned a bit about horse anatomy during the research for this portrait too. She turned out really pretty which reflects her lovely personality.

Developing the main body and face…

Ready to ride, complete with a classic Calgary blue sky!
