Lovely, lovely. Brilliant capture of an Arabian. I'm correcting his "type" mentally, but the art itself is beautiful. I feel there's something a little off about his mane, but it might just be me. Can I ask what's the name of your model? I can tell he's not a Crowns stallion, but I admit that's the only Arabian breeder I know in the South.

Thank you! I don't have the name of the horse, because I saw him at an international in Menton. He is almost certainly from one of the middle eastern studs and trained in Europe, probably Italy. He is as he appears in the painting, except for the top of the mane. I think he is quite true to type, myself. I liked him very much.

I see. He may be of a different type all together then. Unfortunately, I'm still a bit of a novice in many ways except to what I see as an Arabian, highly influenced by those I have seen and read about (basically, blame this horse ([link]) and Walter Farley). Glad to know you enjoyed him, however. He seems like a powerful animal.

I think the US and the European/Middle Eastern circuits tend to favour a slightly different type of show Arab, though there is some crossover with sires like WH Justice and the Psyche line. The Al Shaqab line is huge at the moment. I've noticed a marked change over the past 10 years in what is being bred and shown. The look is getting more extreme in showing. If you look at at some of the older champions they were completely different. I think the Crabbet lines and those horses bred for work look far more like the original Arabs — bred to be strong and have the best endurance of any horse. The desert bred look even less like the horse in my painting. It is worth taking a look at how the Arabian is changing and how it is affecting the breed and people's perception of these wonderful horses. The horse in your photo looks really nice.

Seed-of-beauty,
This is one of the most as amazing pieces I have ever seen in my dA life. You perfectly captured the essence of the Arabian-- freedom, purity, joy, grace, and regality. Congratulations on your triumph.
