This is from an old photo of *Mirage, a stallion imported from the dessert to America around the turn of the last century. He became a foundation sire of the breed. He was in my Arabian gelding's pedigree, too.
I have some plans underway, and this is part of it, so this painting is a departure from the watercolors I have been doing. (Last night had computer maintenance going on and other things so no post yesterday and this is posted via i-pad.)
This is the second iteration, revised from from some inaccurate proportions.
The following is the third version, and final, with head accoutrements.
The whole work was done in ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, and white, with a touch of metallic silver on the chain.
The lighting difference is from outside to inside.
Blessings on your Sunday.
