I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to draw a group horse portrait. Since the owner knew that this portrait would involve quite a bit of work and planning to complete, I was lucky to receive this commission well in advance of the target date, having over 1 year to finish it. With well over 150 reference photos to work with, narrowing down to the perfect pose for each horse was quite a task, let alone placing them all together on a portrait. I was fortunate enough to have the horses co-operate in having their photo taken as a group (and individually) as they were standing all lined up along a fence. The main reference pose was created by patching sections of the group together to form the portrait layout. I then used several individual close-up photographs of each horse to help draw the fine details of each horse. Click above on the link above to view the work in progress and the reference photograph used to create this portrait. Below is a photograph how the portrait was framed.
