Billy's Brother

I decided to call this one done tonight - to the point of signing it, even. Not perfect, but a fun little warm-up for what the rest of the month has in store, I hope!

This is 6 x 4 oil on Raymar cotton canvas panel, using my favourite limited palette. Clever's foal this year, with his big star, reminds us all of a chestnut version of her 2008 foal, Billy, so my trainer friend (who has the first three at Woodbine right now) immediately dubbed him "Billy's brother." I'm hoping he ends up being a little easier to deal with than Billy was! And we'll find him a name of his own, too, don't worry!
