‘Afore the Mairches II – Dark Horses
Where painted: In studio, from a number of photos
Medium: Charcoal and white chalk on cream coloured pastel paper.
Size: 16 ins x 16 ins inclusive of mount. Supplied framed under glass in a plain 1 inch black frame.
Inspiration: I often like to photograph, or occasionally sketch, the horses before they set off on the annual Riding of the Marches celebrations. The incongruousness of horses alongside the high street shops appeals to me – also the excitement of ‘getting ready’ before the event.
Price: £100 (including frame and p & p)
