36x48" Oil on canvas This was a commission, used a composite of numerous photos. It was a 3 month ordeal but client very happy. It was her father on his horse with his farm and cattle in the background.
nice work good size. i paint in this format too. give you lots of space and creates an epic feel to the work. great composition. good primary focal and secondary nice range of color. my only critique would be your range of value i think your shadows are to low in saturation. the contrast between shadow and high light would be grater in a mid day seen. bring those shadows down would create a more dramatic and in my humble opinion a higher 3D affect. other then that and i say its a slight thing its a fantastic work. i would be proud to have painted it. your realism is fantastic and i do get a nice feel for the personality of the man and his horse has this been varnished yet it dose look a bit sunken perhaps that would heighten the contrast a bit further Paul
