This past fall, I had the privilege of painting a handsome dark bay named Southern Gentleman, for a client in Schomberg, Ontario.
True to his name, this noble boy certainly looks the perfect gentleman in his portrait. Groomed and dressed for the show ring with braided mane, this fellow looks the part of a perfect hunter. From his kind eye to his fine head and the detailing in his traditional bridle and Pelham bit, this boy was lovely to paint.
Intended as a surprise Christmas gift, this portrait arrived gift wrapped and ready to be placed under the Christmas tree. Hopefully the recipient of this piece was just as pleased with the results.
