The Friesian Stallion - Getting Started

"Friesian Stallion"   36" x 48"   Oil  (in progress)

I've begun a painting of a Friesian stallion that I saw at the Andalusian and Lusitano Horse Show a couple of months ago.  This horse breed originated in Friesland, Netherlands, and the ancestors of these impressive horses were in great demand during the Middle Ages as war horses.  Below are photos of my impressive subject, Keesje.

  1. The "Friesian Stallion" will be a gorgeous painting, and a perfect complement to "The Andalusian". Thanks for sharing the background on this fascinating breed. The detailed information about the subjects you paint make your blog all the more interesting.
