On the high moor

On the high moor is an oil painting of a grey Dartmoor hill pony grazing on Dartmoor near Haytor rocks. This pony is typical of the semi wild hill ponies that have been gazing here for thousands of years. This is not a pedigree Dartmoor pony which are brown or bay with no white markings but still a native moorland pony. The Dartmoor pony stud book was only created about 100 years ago. I visit this part of Devon often as I grew up close by.

Two year olds West Ilsley SOLD

Two Year olds West Ilsley is an oil painting of young horses exercising at Mick Channons in West Ilsley during the late spring /early summer when the bright yellow oil seed rape is in bloom. I was given permission to use some photographs from the stables a number of years ago when I was struggling to find a bit of direction in my own work. This painting is new to my website and has never been exhibited. it is quite a large and attractive painting and has been beautifully framed to set off the bright colours.

Thunder - SOLD

Thunder is a large head study in oils of a thoroughbred racehorse. I have done a series of paintings influenced by mist and low light, it's a subject that interests me as I try to get away from the more usual views of horse racing.  The atmosphere, expression of the horse and the colours used in the painting suggested the title. The original reference for this is from my own photographs taken at Aintree racecourse.

The original painting is available from The Art Collective at Gra Coffee Bar Nass, Co. Kildare contact Susan MacMillan 0872611540
