The partnership and close bond of this team was evident when I visited them. These Belgians had worked together for a long time, had lots of history together, and it showed in how they drove, always in stride and moving as one unit. I had so much fun with this painting, pushing the limits of colors, shapes and contrast, always balancing between reality and abstract forms. But the emphasis on the bangs and manes of the horses, as they were untrimmed and left totally natural, had to be conveyed with paint, color and texture. Painting this draft horse portrait was no easy task, as they had long heads, a distinct facial shape different from other breeds, but were in reality gentle giants, and had very sweet personalities. In this painting I wanted to accomplish bringing all of that to the forefront.
