I have been working on two paintings at the same time which I started in 2015. Resources are from photographs which my husband took for me at the Soham Ploughing Championships in 2013.
In the spring of 2015, I produced two line drawings on tracing paper to transfer on to good water colour paper and then paint them. However, I ran out of time because I received several commissions and typesetting jobs so the two artworks were “filed”. I then had the chance to have a stand at the Suffolk Horse Society Spectacular at Elveden in September 2015 so hurriedly scanned the drawings and made some sepia coloured canvas prints and cards, of which I sold quite a few on the day.
Having totally forgotten about the drawings since then, when seeking inspiration, I had a delve into my “sketchbook suitcase” and they were rediscovered. I felt it was time to promote them to being completed. Primarily water colour, but with black and gold ink, the pictures below show progress so far. I hope to complete them for an exhibition at the end of October (2021!!). I hope you like them. (Painted on Aquarelle Arches 100% cotton rag 12″ x 16″.)
