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
