The Medieval period!…sigh! I am absolutely OBSESSED with it! The horses, the romance, the clothes, everything! Like the Civil War, I have been interested in all things medieval since I was a child and again, it stems from when my dad used to take us to look at old ruined castles where there would be re-enactment groups which brought the history to life. I guess it has all just remained with me ever since.

A Facebook friend of mine has very kindly allowed me to use her wonderful photo of her and her horse. Both horse and rider look absolutely stunning and I couldn’t resist painting it. I’ve been meaning to get around to creating a painting such as this for months and this challenge has allowed me to make a start on what will be an ongoing project. I’m really enjoying these swirling backgrounds and each time I do them I feel they are becoming more effective. I will keep experimenting with the idea.

Low resolution images are used for each painting day, this is to help to prevent unauthorised usage and downloading,  hence the colours may vary slightly from that of the original.
 A higher resolution image is available to view if you may be interested in purchase.
 Please contact Roxanne on the above email for further details.
Thank you for following our progress on this creative journey,
all comments and support gratefully received……..
