A truly stunning action image of the spectacle of White Turf; the race meeting held on a frozen lake high in the swiss Alps every february.
One of the Dent brothers favourite subjects for their paintings
Artist David capures the speed and dash for home of horses and jockeys against the stunning forestry of the slopes behind. He uses a backdrop of vivid blue viridian and pink hues handled confidently and with absract technique which produces an amazing effect of the light and speed.
A truly outstanding piece of Art to remind all why the equine artists David and Adrian are the masters of the White turf subject and exhibit there each year.
The original painting was underpainted using acrylics with melted snow from the track and then oils and turps to produce a spectacular effect.
