The crowds cheer as Two for Two crosses over the finishing line taking first place. This winning racehorse is the pride and joy of his owner who is based in Yorkshire. He has a number of racehorses but this thoroughbred is his favorite by far. It is because he purchased him as a young colt and he has gone through extensive training. The racehorse owner wanted to document his win by commissioning artwork. He wanted to turn Two for Two into a piece of horse racing art for his wall.  Creating a piece of original horse art is much more spectacular and special than just having a photograph mounted. Horse racing art is a great horseracing gift to any owner. The racehorse owner sent me a photograph of Two for Two and I took some time to study it. The original photo had another horse behind him which I did not include in the composition. I lightly sketched the racehorse and jockey onto the canvas with a pencil. Then I painted in the base colour of the background layer. I always paint the background layer first as I tend to think that the background is just an extension and as important as the actual subject itself. If I can get the background feeling right in the first base layer then it is a good starting point with the hope that the painting flows after that. I always then start with eyes and faces next. I painted in the horse first followed by the jockey. Once I have the background layers all painted in and the flow of the painting working correctly, I then take the time to add the layers of detail over the top of the painting. The next few layers of detail are what takes all the time. The painting took me 6 weeks to complete including drying time. The racehorse owner was thrilled to bits with the final horse racing art and the horse painting now hangs in pride of place over their fireplace.
