Horse paintings actually weren’t something that came about until several years after the creation of Splendid Beast. Since then however, we’ve made some of the best – and somewhat abstract – horse paintings on the internet!
One of our favorite custom paintings is based off of a famous painting by George Stubbs, who was well known for his horse paintings in the latter half of the 18th century. The featured picture for this blog post, also seen below, based off of “Bay Horse and White Dog”, framed in one of our beautiful golden frames.
This next painting was our very first horse painting – as well as one of our first Photo to Painting Recreations, before we even had the option in our shop!
Horses tend to be accompanied by others, of course. Sometimes, they need some poker buddies. It can’t be too easy to count chips with hooves.
Other times they’re posing with their riders and first place ribbons.
Sometimes they’re off in the background, coming to the rescue of a damsel in distress..perhaps with a little help.
The Abstract Side
Some of our favorite paintings are a bit more on the abstract side. Three legged Pepe, for example, made for an excellent painting subject as Don Quixote along with his horse, Rocinante.
This pair of cowboys also made great subjects for their painting. Horse cowboys? Horseboys? Cowhorses? Whatever, here’s a couple of dudes with horse heads sitting on a fence.
