181 Dressage at Fork

This painting was done on location at the Fork Stables a few weeks back during the CIC*** 3 Day Event. The horse (and its rider) participate in a cross country course - uphill, downhill, over jumps and through water, a timed stadium jumping course and dressage. For this painting I was standing at the side of the road looking down into the dressage ring. With a painting like this from life, one has to decide what to paint first. Capture the horse and rider than leisurely(relatively) at the background or the other way around, get the landscape right and then set the horse and rider in it.
