Horse Portraits by Artist Penny Richardson

Realistic & stunning Horse Portraits in gouache watercolour, oils and acrylic.

I am an established horse portrait artist from the county of Rutland near the Leicestershire and Lincolnshire borders.
I have been painting horse portraits and equestrian paintings since the early 1980’s. Working in a variety of mediums that include watercolour, oils and acrylics.
Having the versatility to adapt too many different painting mediums gives me a great advantage as a portrait artist.
This enables me to capture bespoke horse portraits in fine detail with a rich use of colour and giving a tremendous amount of realism to the painting.

Thank you! I really don’t think any alterations are needed at all but please let me know your thoughts too.
Does it now go to Joh for framing?
Thanks again and have a lovely evening. Dan

We traveled from Exton in Rutland to Clopton In Northamptonshire close to the Cambridgeshire border to meet and photograph Nutmeg, Sam & Tommy.
The customer then viewed and choose the photographs and decided the composition for the painting.
