Keith. This is just great. Reminds me of a sort of retro poster. Love the style and colours.

Really well done, great movement with the horse and riders and I love the ease of including all three that you did.

As a Dick Francis fan, I opened this post first the day I saw it. You must be an avid chase fan to put this together. It's so well done my eye keeps moving around the painting. :clap:

I see you're in Ireland. We consider our Irish vacation one of the best. So much beauty everywhere. Do you paint any landscapes?

Thank you Babtiste.

Thanks Elaine it was fun to paint .

Thanks Maureen.

Thanks Andrea for stopping by . Believe it or not i know little about horse racing . But did have an itch to paint horses .....my dad is the avid chase fan so i painted this for him .

Glad you loved your stay in Ireland , it is beautiful here . To tell you the truth this is only my third painting . But yes with the colours in the landscape at this time of year i have been out with the camera hoping to take a snap that will translate well as a painting !
