Horse oil painting by Sheri Gee

Equestrian art

I’ve been taking an interest in painting horses lately. It’s a totally different skill base for me, after painting people for so long. A lot of equine or equestrian art that I’d been accustomed to seeing, has tended to be very tight, more photographic and representational than expressionist. I wanted to see what I could bring to the subject, using my fresh brush marks and unusual colour. Most paintings are based on horses belonging to a number of friends of mine, some are private commissions. It’s been really encouraging when I post a painting and someone instantly recognises the horse! If you’re interested in commissioning a painting of your horse or purchasing a painting here, please get in touch.
