Equine Commissions

A photograph can capture the image of your horse, but it does not often capture the character or spirit. A painting or drawing takes its heart from the essence of its subject be that a horse, a pet, or a person.

Polly and Rizla

Polly and Rizla are two mature mares who, as you can see, have a great sense of humour. Liz has had Polly (grey) since 1983, and despite her being the grand old age of 29, she still has a lot of character and if she does not want to be caught she won't be!  Liz retired her a couple of years ago but was insistent that both Polly and Rizla were part of her official wedding photos last year! This pastel was a commemoration of two great characters and friends.

Hi Carole

" Just to say thank you very much for the Pastel of Polly and Rizla.  It is lovely and I will treasure it for ever!  I will get it mounted and framed next week.  I look forward to seeing you if you will be at Blenheim this year.  Thank you again."

Regards Liz

Saracen was very muddy when we met to sketch and take photographs. He obviously had ‘attitude’ and I hope this comes out in the painting.
