I was commissioned to do a painting by Steve as a surprise birthday present for his wife of her favourite horse, Marksman. She has had this horse for many years and even has a picture of her with it on their wedding day.
Steve sent me some pictures to choose from and we decided a black and white photo was the best pose but I used the others to add the correct colours. I wasn’t able to visit the stables to take my own photos because Steve’s wife lives and works there so no chance of getting a sneak picture!
I had a lovely message from Steve’s wife which says: Thank you so much for the picture, its gorgeous!! Pride of place on the wall already!!
