Description Three horses are shown in a field in this oil painting, painted during late summer 2012. Two of the horses are black, the other brown. They are taken from a photograph of horses in the New Forest. I then placed them in to a composition using a photograph of a field from another location. I enjoyed painting the three horses, in particular the shine on their coats, as I had only ever painted one other horse previously. The brightness of the grass helps to show the form of the dark horses well. Painted on a canvas sized at 20” x 16”.
Martin Davey, Southampton Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement Hi,
Welcome to my gallery, which contains largely illustrations for the childrens market.
I like my paintings to be as accessible as possible to a wide audience. Detail and colour are important, combined with a simple visual message for any one to enjoy.
The artwork is created entirely in the art program, photoshop, from the rough drawing up to the finished work,using a drawing tablet.
My career has largely been based in creating artwork for the animation industry.
