Painting in progress

I was just leaving the Grove stud one day and out of the corner of my eye across the way I could see this scene, it was pretty cool nearly in slow motion and I started to think about it, about what I was looking at and straight away I had to dismiss the obvious and start to wonder about the relationship between the man and the horse,the physical anatomy and the energy of the two together and the space they filled,the sound and smell and here we are at the early stage of trying to express the dance on canvas. Lets see how it goes

Carrigadrohid castle, finished and sold

Acrylic paint on stretched canvas, 40 X 30 inch.I was very happy to do this painting it was a nice change of pace from my regular subject and has given me a number of ideas to pursue going forward. I must say thank you to John who brought me to see the castle in the first place and I got to see it from a range of angles, from the bridge as well as the river bank and it will be a background in some future paintings for sure. #castle #castleruin #painting #landscape #Art #fineart
