Giving a Racehorse image a new career

In 1984 my new studio's address became  "Woodbine" Hts Blvd. To celebrate this wonderful address Going Away was created in mixed media. The image examines speed in Pen & Ink with colour applied in Wax Crayon. It was created on Rising Vellum Bristol. Going Away was exhibited once and has been in a private collection ever since.

In late 2015 a client with a request, a race horse image to reflect that same 1980s era at Woodbine for a book cover. The client wished to illustrate a Trainer/Exercise rider, at dawn with a similar non background, possibly at Woodbine. Much smaller, Tails from the Track maintains speed this time in transparent watercolour.
