A portrait for Grandpa, horse profile in watercolor

watercolor profile of quarter horse 11 by 14 © Maria Reichert
A friend asked me to paint a portrait of this mare for her grandpa.  I struggled a bit to include the close up, not sure how to add it without having it look awkward and out of place.  Once again I wouldn't have tried it without a little encouragement, and I think my friend was right to ask it to be included.  Shows so much more of the personality of the mare to see her face up close!
