I hesitated to review this since my main subject matter for my art has always been horses. As a teenager I could draw a horse skeleton and name every bone and many of the muscles. I think your mane and forelock are very good for a beginner, as are the colors. But you might want to consider a few things for your next horse head. Instead of the top of the eye looking like a "peaked roof" with the high point in the center, the arch of a horse's eye is more toward the inside toward the forehead. Also, the nostrils tilt a little toward one another at the top -- these nostrils are lined up more like a camel's nostrils. The position of the ears is good, but the one on the viewer's left would look more softly cupped and delicate. Practice makes perfect and you will get these things in time! Thanks for sharing this tribute to the sturdy Comtois! Daphne Oberon

    Thank you so much for your wonderful review and critical comments. I will do it better next time. I wish I knew everything about horses like you do. Thanks for your time and advise.

This is spectacular Lucas! You did such a nice job making her look so elegant and regal. I really like your work on her eyes and the position of her head and face. Your color blending is also beautiful! It makes me very happy that you were inspired by the photograph and that you decided to paint this one :)

This painting of the horse is very well rendered. Lovely smooth brushwork! Fineness of the features well drawn.The shading is just fine. Overall a very good effort. Good luck!

A very nice painting with fine colors and a well shown mane. I think the eye lashes make the horse seem a little effeminate, especially for a sturdy draft horse. Best of luck in the contest.

A cyber Six stars for your painting of this beautiful mare with her blonde mane falling over one eye while the sunlight lightens up one side of her face one eye watching you as you paint her portrait. Created by your very skilful brushwork beautiful choice blending & application of your colours in bringing this beautiful Mare to neighing life. I feel I should be able to stretch out my hand & stroke her nose! Good luck in the contest.

You're a child prodigy when it comes to creating realistic painting!

Your strokes are not typical of a kid--it looks like that of a seasoned painter!

An artistic rendition. Monochromatic colors.
Gorgeous one sided illumination creating a mild chiaroscuro effect.

Excellent details & features. Impressive strokes & textures. Thanks for sharing...
