On any given day in my studio there are generally 3-4 paintings in progress and they fall into a working rotation. Sprinkled in between those days are a few Alla Prima sessions, where I aim to complete one painting on that particular day. There is also usually a painting that sits longer. I work on it sporadically; when I have some extra paint on my palette, or perhaps I'm experimenting with an idea. Such is the case with this, Two Geldings painting. 

Originally I started tight and thought the horses would be represented classically, however as I keep learning and evolving ideas, the traditional way just seemed - boring. Once the horses were marked in I created a paper mask to protect the horses and started laying in shapes, textures and colour in cold wax, crayons and oil bars. Then I ripped up some papers and old newsprint and layed in the cold wax too. This completely disrupted the image the way I wanted. Then, uncovering the mask I worked the horses into the disruption. To complete the image I zoned in on refining shapes in offset cross composition. 

The end result is very different from much of my work and I love it! It's a fun piece with lots of movement, texture and not to mention how appropriate a title if you have ever owned a troublemaking gelding 😉

Discover the Essence of Equine Beauty Through Art

As an artist, I have dedicated myself to the subject that inspires me most, the equine form. I am drawn to the lines in a horse’s conformation; fluid, angular, curvaceous and graceful. I aim to transform each horse's unique essence into art
