This is a painting of my friends horse Pringle. I made it for her for her birthday! I painted him using acrylic paints. This is my first ever painting, on canvas. Everything else I've ever painted has been done just for fun, in a span of 1-3 hours!
This is very well done for a first painting, particularly in a slightly difficult medium like acrylics. The background and horses head are very well done, the composition and colour scheme are great. My only criticisms would be that the neck of the horse looks a bit flat, but I think this works in your favour because the image is just very clear and simple, and besides, its the first time you've done it, so you can't expect perfection right away . This is really nicely done, keep up the good work!
this is your first real painting?..wow..that's just amazing..great job on the fur [do horses have fur?..well whatever you call it..haha] and Pringle's hair..since it adds movement to the piece..as if there is a gentle wind blowing..and the details with the house's paneling and the horse ornament on the door is a nice touch..this is such a wonderful gift for a friend..you're awesome for doing that..since it's a gift from the heart..
