DescriptionThe painting is really done as a small quick exercise. Three horses are shown eating grass by a roadside in this oil painting, painted during late summer 2012. They are taken from a number of photographs of horses captured in the New Forest. A composition was then created in photoshop, joining up the three horses to make one pleasing picture. I enjoyed painting the three horses, in particular the shine on their coats. The brightness of the grass helps to show the form of the brown horses well. Painted on a canvas board sized at 12” x 10”.
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.
