I like to paint the horses of friends, but I do search for nice reference photos on public domain sites and the morgue file site that allows use of the photos. When I saw this photo on PublicDomainPictures.net, it reminded me of a wild mustang, although the description of the photo was just 'Horse's Head.' I thought I'd depict him feeling sort of blue, with his down-cast eyes and blue face. I especially enjoyed painting those white eyelashes!
