Noble Steed

Noble Steed

by Marina Scheinberg

Acrylic paint on canvas

Methods: Painted background to foreground with acrylic paint

Inspiration: At first the idea of loyalty made me think about a game of chess. Each chess piece is loyal in protecting their king and queen. To build on this, I also thought about the original movie Shrek, specifically when Fiona calls Donkey a noble steed. Putting these thoughts together, I painted an adventure story scene, where the horse is loyal to their queen like they would be in a game of chess.
