'Gallop'


This new painting is based on a series of photos I took of Polly Stockton and Regulus competing in the cross country phase of Badminton Horse Trials last weekend. Oil on canvas, 50cm x 35cm.

I have only just started it, sketched out the basic colours very thinly and roughly this morning. I am unsure of whether I will stay true to my photos and keep it a painting of the specific horse and rider, or whether I'll use some artistic licence and make it a bit different, will see how the mood takes me! Have no idea what I am going to have as the background yet... decisions decisions!
