Digital Painting — June 2022

In 2014, I started a digital painting/study of a
very cool action-photo of woman barrel rider (see
that pic in the reference composite below — as well
as two crops of the final image above — that may
make it easier to view details in this painting).

After cats (BIG and small) —horses
are my favorite animal and so back then —
I began working on it in earnest.

Though, as I worked — I began altering this
and that, expanding and expanding it. I had most of
the layout as you see above — but used photo 'place-
holders' for some of the ideas I had in mind for
what was becoming an 'epic' scene. : )

As things go — I kinda burned out
on this at that time — but always kept it in
mind — wanting to finish it eventually.

After completing my last digital painting,
The Giant Hunters — Homecoming, which was
also a painting I started long ago — I decided
to see if I could finally polish this one off too.

Along the way, I collected 100s of reference
images for it — but as you may note from this
composite of a few of them— I worked hard at not
just making photo-realisitc 'studies' of them.

Either way —I loved being able to reference your image — thank you!

Lastly — here are two 'crops' from my final painting which should allow you to see more detail.
