More racehorses

In the Running
Watercolours, 15" x 11"

Another painting based on reference photos taken at Hereford racecourse. This time I was inspired by the lighting, especially the shadows being cast by one horse and jockey, landing on the lead horse.

This painting will join two other racehorse paintings and several florals in an exhibition in my friend's new gallery in Kington, Herefordshire.

Very bright and expressive painting. The movement and the competition are shown so great!
Thank you Ruth,

Good work! I love to paint horses, so, maybe sometimes to rest from them I will paint flowers...
