The Sound of Galloping Horses
Can you hear the sound of galloping horses in this batik? By cropping the picture and keeping the horses as silhouettes, I wanted you to focus on the legs and hooves of the horses as they gallop over the ground and kick up the dust. The riders are soldiers riding their horses during the Trooping of the Colour ceremony in Horseguards Parade in London. I did two versions 42cms x 34cms and a larger one of 59cms x 50cms. Both originals have been sold.
