Nathanial & Workforce
Nathanial & Workforce
This oil painting, taken from a press photograph, depicts Nathanial & Workforce running in the King George VII stakes, Ascot 23rd July 2011. Artists licence has been taken with reality to turn the photograph into an exciting portrayal of a very eventful and tragic race. Nathanial became the first three-year-old since 2003 to win the King George as he edged out Workforce in a race that was marred by a tragic accident that cost Rewilding his life, having to be put down after breaking his near-fore leg in front of the stands.

 To make the work come alive is a challenge I set myself; colour, tone and technique all play their parts in creating the illusions of movement I am seeking to find in much of my painting. I don’t want to give the impression that this all that I do as there are other aspects to my work, as can be seen from my portfolio. I create pieces which perhaps have a kind of dreaminess, the reason is that much of my subject matter that I use no visual references (except for those photo sources that are sometimes needed to get the horses legs right!). Nearly all of my work is drawn from memory of skies, seas and places, the imagined feel of a horse race or of yachts sailing.
