So perfect portrait of this great horse. f/v

Jani Freimann replied:

Thank you very much, Wanda. More to come.

I just love this! Great work. Is this a horse that you own? Such a gorgeous animal, whether he is real or came out of your imagination... I just love this work!

Jani Freimann replied:

Thank you, Lisa. This was not one of my horses. We owned Arabians when we had horses. As a kid, I would go out in the pasture and study the horses as they ate, rested and interacted with each other. I took my sketchbook a couple of times, sat near them and drew them too. I loved horses so much that I drew them all the time. In fact, I drew them instead of doing my classwork and homework. I've spent so much time drawing horses over the years that I could and do draw horses from my head. In fact, it's strange that I don't have more horse art posted on FAA. I plan on posting more horses soon.

Jani Freimann replied:

You can see some of the more recent drawings on my blog: This Redhead Can Paint.

Thank you, Vonda and Resham.

Beautiful Picture! Love the wrinkles in his neck and the detail!

Thank you, Wanda. Oh, and Carol, I meant thank not than. :-)

What a beauty.

Such a beautiful painting of this very unique horse.

Jani Freimann replied:

Than you, Carol. This one was especially fun to do.

Jani, I know you are right. Long time ago, lack of communications from a framer and it always stuck in my mind. Thanks for the input, will now have to change to suede. I am forever learning. Thanks, Antonia

Jani, Thumbs up on this appy. I've called it velour, but I suppose suede board is the right description. I've found it very difficult to work on, but, with persistance it certainly gives a different effect.

Jani Freimann replied:

Thank you, Antonia. I've never heard it called velour before. I get my 'suede board' from a local frame shop. They sell the 'fall outs' to the suede matte boards and I find them to be a convenient size and very workable for pet portraits when I use soft pastels. However, it does not allow you to erase. The pink in the skin is, in fact, eraser marks from a no. 2 pencil. After noticing that I wasn't able to remove the pink eraser marks, I just went with it and made more. After all, Leopard Appy's have pink skin. A happy accident. :-)
