Black and White Fine Art Horse Photography – Video

I thought I would try something a little different to advertise some of my Fine Art Horse Photography so created this video with a selection of my favourite black and white horse images.  I quite enjoyed putting it together and I think it is an interesting and rather unique way to show some of my horse art and photography. I hope you enjoy and would love to know what you think of the video....

Lion - Pride of Africa I - Tribute to Cecil

Lion – Pride of Africa Tribute to Cecil

This new three part series was created as a photographic tribute to Cecil the Lion.  You may remember the international outrage at the death of Cecil, the male south west African lion who was killed by a recreational big game hunter in July 2015.  Cecil lived mostly in the Hwange National Park in Matabeleland North, Zimbabwe and was one of the most well known lions in Africa. Although wild, he was not afraid of humans and was so frequently observed at close...

Grey Horse At The Beach

Grey Horse Fine Art Photography

I’ve recently re-edited an older photograph of a beautiful grey horse that I met at the beach a few years ago.   Its always been one of my favorite photographs – the horse seems to be looking back from where he has come in such a soft wistful way that I think the photograph lends itself to some subtle texture and soft romantic editing. I have created three versions of this one simply because I love them all.  Black...

See My Soul

See My Soul – Acrylic Painting Horse Eye Close-up

This is a second acrylic painting that I have been working on at the same time as ‘Soul Reflection’.  I normally only work on one piece at a time, but in this case the colours on my palette were similar as as it is so hot the acrylic paint is drying quickly so I was able to work between the two pieces quite efficiently. See My Soul is an acrylic painting (using Atelier Interactive acrylic paints and various mediums...

Forest Light Landscape Paintingcreated on iPad in Procreate

Forest Light – iPad Painting and Process Video

I am thoroughly enjoying using my iPad to paint with and I am really amazed at how powerful the Procreate app is.  I normally paint digitally on one layer, just like I do on an old fashioned canvas, usually only using layers to test things out before applying to the layer I am working on.  Most digital artists utilise layers extensively as they do have huge benefits and speed up work flow, but I usually end up getting confused,...

Dragon Fantasy Painting

Green Dragon – iPad Fantasy Painting

This is my latest iPad painting – something very different for me!  This is the first time I have tried to paint a dragon (or any reptilian type animal for that matter) in any medium, so it was definitely a learning experience, especially as I normally work from photographic reference and well…this guy is a figment of my imagination so no photos exist to work from! The concept of the dragon laying on a ledge looking at the butterfly...

Australian Stock Horse pet portrait acrylic painting

Australian Stock Horse Acrylic Painting in Progress

A bit more progress on the acrylic Australian Stock Horse painting.  I had planned to create this one in a much looser style, but as usual too much detail is already creeping in! My apologies for the poor iphone photo and light reflecting off the wet paint....
