Sea The Stars Racehorse In Two Paintings

Shortly after the 2009 Epsom Derby, I had an idea to immortalise the Irish thoroughbred racehorse Sea The Stars in not one, but two oil paintings. Firstly, I wanted to depict the horse in majestic galloping form, with jockey, Mick Kinane mounted and mid-race pose.

The second was more contemporary in its appearance. A collage painting of the sea, a celestial skyscape and a silhouette of Sea The Stars dominating the centre would make up an interesting experiment, and a new way of depicting this beautiful animal.
