Description Horses helped to make our civilizations and progress, watch there muscles ripple as they seem to glide, they gallop and trot, whinny and neigh, capturing our imagination and our hearts. Indeed, horses are said to have done more to change human history than any other domestic animal, once upon a time carrying explorers to new frontiers and mighty armies to great conquests.
James Shepherd, kelso, scotland Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement I was born in 1946 in the then small town of Irvine in north Ayrshire Scotland. Learned the basics of how to paint from my father using oils. Did not paint for many years until found a method of hand painting using an oil painting medium combined with a tablet. The style of my artwork is traditional inspired by impressionist paintings and influenced by realistic styling to convey character and / or movement of my subjects hopefully allowing the viewer to enjoy a glimpse of the mood.
