Contemporary Equine Painting Details

Sometimes color inspires art more than the actual subject. That's certainly the case with this painting. After browsing horse racing images on the Internet I discovered pics that piqued my interest. In the background of an image I noticed the red coats and white pants of the course stewards. I immediately started sketching and playing with the colors and shapes until it inspired me to start painting.

This piece is created with a mixed media combination of heavy body acrylics, inks and compressed charcoal on archival paper and measures 17" x 15". I haven't taken the time to explore the subject/theme since painting this one but hope to do so very soon.

Hope you enjoyed the paintings and thanks for having a look.
