Abstract Horse Portrait

Haven't spent much time painting horses lately so I thought it would be a great change of pace to try some portraits. I used a combination of acrylics and crayon to create this loose & expressive horse portrait on 140 lb. archival paper, it measures 22H x 15W inches.

I also used a reject which is a common technique with my approach. Another fact is I used a hogs hair bristle brush that's on it's last leg to do most of the important strokes in the final layer. I do feel this brush helped add some loose qualities so, I guess I'll keep it around for a bit longer.

Hope you enjoyed the new artwork & thanks for having a look.
