Pooka painting is finished~~

This is Robin Olmstead's beautiful Miniature Horse Stallion, Pooka.  Would like to Thank her for the use of her photos, so I could try to do a painting of him.
This piece was done, with water based Oils on Hot pressed paper.

 Is the first time I tried this and it was a challenge. Not sure I am going to try it again but time will tell.
It turned out more in the style of Folk Art, as this piece seemed to have a mind of its own. 
Am also coming to the conclusion that I need a magnifying glass of some type. As I am having a hard time, putting in the detail I normally do.
