Thank you Karen Brommelsick for allowing me to use your wonderful photographs as reference.

This is a 24 x 30 oil on linen of an  Andalusian .....

"Andalusian or Pure Spanish Horse (Pura Raza Espanola) is one of Europe’s oldest horse breeds. The Andalusian horse has lived in the Iberian Peninsula for thousands of years and is the district’s horse. It's genetic character has changed very little. The Andalusian is one of Europe’s iconic horse breeds that influences almost all horse breeds of the World.
