No Horsing around!!

Spending a great deal of time this year knocking out several illustrations. This is in light of the fact I want to have a second exhibition. So far I have 18 new pieces and am working hard to get them all finished before the end of the year.
This one was inspired by the idea of horse drawn carriages being replaced by motors, but retaining the classification of Horse Power. The animated gif shows my process of painting the image, which took some 2 weeks to do.
You can see the full project here:


#behance, #horse, #illustration


1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
