The rider looks tall because he’s up out of his saddle in the stirrups a little and polo ponies tend to be short. Who wants a tall polo pony. Nobody. It makes it harder to hit the ball on the ground and it’s good to not lean out of the saddle too much.
Anyway actually drew this with pencil on 300 # Arches cold press and painted it with Ted Nuttalls transparent colors plus cerulean.
Truly time to paint. Margaret in charlotte. Xoxo I feel a trip to cheap Joes coming on!!
