In the summer of 2016, the Facebook Group “Photos for Artists” had their monthly challenge, for June the subject was “Horses”. In this group many talented photographers submit their photos to the page, for artists to use as their reference images. For the challenge, any horse photo could be chosen from the designated albums. With 1 month to complete the painting, artists from all over the world then submit their finished piece, it is voted for, and the top 10 chosen, are then judged. I was thrilled to have won this challenge amongst so many talented artists. I chose a strong and powerful image of a gray stallion that I titled “Imeptus”.
