Whitney Wesson's Horse

This oil painting captures a beautiful moment of Whitney show jumping at a young child. Her horse was sadly put down 2 years ago which precipitated her desire to have her beautiful horse painted in oils. Whitney provided me a colour photo but wished me to paint the horse portrait in black and white to provide a more vivid and heartfelt memory. Sometimes I get concerned that a black and white portrait will not capture the moment sufficiently but I feel Whitney was right to choose a black and white portrait in this instance. After nearly 30 hours of painting I am very happy with the outcome and more importantly Whitney is too she said ‘this painting will provide a priceless memory of the love of my life who will never be forgotten’
