The Rearing Stallion In Progress

I'm currently working on a painting of the Andalusian stallion Apagon performing the levade (equestrian term for rearing up). Early on I couldn't resist finishing the eye and now it will be staring at me while I finish the rest of the painting!

Here's the painting in progress.  (An earlier false start is on the right.)


  1. you will be having dreams about that eye.. ha! Love what you are doing. Let me know when you finish I'm a fan of paintings of horses.

  2. I see what you mean about the eye. It is as if the
    andalusian is saying, "Hurry up - I can't hold the pose much longer." But what a beautiful subject he is! This is really quite beautiful, and I can't wait to see it completed.
