Horse and woman portrait painting sketches

horse paintings, portrait artistsI’m well into a very fun portrait project. A few weeks ago I took (a couple hundred) photos of this lovely young woman and her horse.  They chose 5 photos that may be the right one, and I made sketches to make it easier to choose. Here are 2 of the 5 sketches.

It’s hard to see how a painting might turn out when the background and other extra info is competing for attention, and so sketches help both me with my process and the collector with deciding…

I really love painting horses and people together, and these two are such a striking pair. I can’t wait to find out which one of these gets to the heart of what they want to remember.
