Description of Mercury – Portrait of a Blue Roan

Meet Mercury.

Mercury is the first blue roan I’ve ever painted in any medium. His unique coloring was a challenge to capture, and so was his personality. Especially since I didn’t have the opportunity to see Mercury in person until the day the portrait was delivered.

This is also the first portrait I’ve finished on Clairefontaine Pastelmat, a sanded art surface designed for pastels, but also perfect for colored pencils.

I am available on a limited basis for portrait work. For more information on portraits, see About Portraits. Contact me for additional information or if you have questions.
