I kind of sat on the subject until recently, when I was discussing the local community in terms of pictures. It seemed like a good time to dig out the racehorses. I made a painted sketch on cardboard, using a limited acrylic palette and an outlined style inspired by Fauvism:
Both used a limited palette: black, burnt umber, ultramarine, titanium white, yellow ochre and, for the work on canvas only, azo yellow medium.
You might recognise the trees to the left - they are my "Skyline" trees that have featured in Skyline, Skyline 2 and Study in Yellow.
