This striking equestrian art print depicts a pair of racehorses working on an overcast morning, on the Summer Canter of Newmarket Heath. Originally painted in oil on canvas, this painting captures the spirit of enjoyment and competition between two thoroughbreds exercising on the gallops.
The bay horse, leading by a short head, is stretching every sinew to stay in front of his counterpart, and is relishing his dominance. The grey, portrayed in the suspension phase of his gallop, appears to be enjoying his work every bit as much, as the spirited pair are put through their paces on an overcast Newmarket morning.
The artist says:
“For me this piece of art had to be all about motion and the majesty of the horse in full flight. I love the tonal contrast between grey and bay horses and had a strong desire to place the two together, each acting as a visual foil for the other. By setting the horses against a grey sky, with distant brown fields, I have mirrored their coats in the landscape. This gives a cohesion and unity to the painting and makes it relaxing to view”.
