Breton Horse

Breton Horse
20cm x 20cm. 8 in x 8in.
Oil gesso board.

Another portrait of the beautiful Breton Horses at the Haras National in Hennebont. A Haras is a stud farm for the preservation and development of the breed. This one at Hennebont (our local town) has fantastic old stables filled with these magnificent stallions. Solid and powerful they seem quite content to be visited by the likes of me with my sketchbook.

60 pounds (UK) 116 dollars (USA) and 85 euros (Europe). This includes the postage.

wonderful horse portrait! I like the "gentle" way you treat the colours and blend them beautifully.
