Irish Horse Racing Painting -- Ireland Detail of Latest Painting in Progress

The above is a first closeup look at one of my current work in progress. The painting has eight horses but this is the first that is really finished so I show closeup of this only. You can see the earlier post that shows the full painting in progress a few posts back. Here in Ireland, horse racing is a very popular sport and draws large crowds to spectate at the major festivals, such as Galway Races and Punchestown. I am working most every day now to complete this and other work for my upcoming exhibition at the end of next month. Hope you enjoy how this painting is emerging as I am very pleased with it so far, and how my painting style is becoming more settled and distinctive. Feel free to pass comments, as I appreciate feedback, thanks Jim

Irish Landscape Art - Horse Racing Painting

The above is halfway stage or maybe a little more in one of a few paintings I have on the go at the moment. I am aiming to finish around five more paintings this month so will post them all as I do so. The above is 28" x 20". As I mentioned earlier I am busy with preparing for an exhibition in Clonmel Library in June, approx. 25th June. So I am also making display frames for some of the larger paintings. These are frames that are suitable for display but which I don't sell with the painting, so can use them again. Also this allows the buyer to choose their own frame for the painting. -- Jim
