I’m really enjoying exploring watercolours with pencil and charcoal at the moment so for tonights piece I decided to use the medium again. I’ve wanted to use this photo of Jane’s for ages and have finally got around to doing something with it. Jane took a series of photos of the ‘Equicirque’ in London. They are a company who put on magnificent equestrian shows and tour around the world with their productions. This particular horse and rider were from an act called ‘Los Rios’ and apparently the girl was only 15 years old!

By using a limited colour palette and being quite bold with the paint application, the image has been simplified which I think works well. The horse is actually grey but because i forced myself to use just a few colours I have re-created it in my own way. The angle of the horse and rider makes it an interesting piece and adds that element of mystery.

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.
