Desert Horse



Another pastel from some time ago. The model for this study was a small bay Arabian stallion who lived locally. He used to do well in ridden classes at local shows as he was a typical Arabian, very showy and obliging for his young lady rider. I put a costume onto him (artistic license) as I thought it would suit him for this study.

Good idea to show people how beautiful your work is, now that you are so busy with your commissions, this keeps your work there so we can all enjoy.

Thanks Judy! It is hard not being able to post recent oils - but maybe in the future :) How are the Ospreys coming along? Lesley

你可以從外表的美來評論一朵花或一隻蝴蝶,但你不能這樣來評論一個人 ..................................................

Thank you Gary, lovely to hear from you over in Montana! Hope you do not have too much snow ... but then it is a good excuse to paint.
Thanks also to the chinese person. I am struggling a bit with translation. :)
