Beautiful work! The detail is astounding and I love how you make it more "blurred" as the eye moves from the face to the chest. :clap: Stunning work as always!

Thank you! I haven't tried doing that blurred out-of-focus effect before so I'm glad you think it looks good :D

I really don't comment on your stuff enough anymore. I just have been a little overburdened to pay as much attention as I ought to to some people's work, especially yours. There's a sort of tranquility with horses - particularly in calmer scenes like this. But there's always this sort of hidden, held back, raw power and magnificence within a horse, as well. I think that you've managed to capture these very intrinsic qualities perfectly. You've done justice to the real thing.

That's ok, I don't believe I'd been posting many things to comment on until recently! And any comment is really appreciated, but not 'expected'. thanks very much :)
