Returning After Strong Work


  • Date: 31 October, 2012


There is nothing more enchanting than Newmarket Heath in the morning as a string of steaming thoroughbred racehorses makes it’s way towards you through the rising mist after their morning exercises. There’s another string just becoming visible in the distance. Strong work they call it. The sun doesn’t actually rise where I’ve painted it. I wanted to try my hand at a Turner sky and thought the sun was appropriate there.
