This painting depicts an Australian Light Horseman on his sturdy Waler trotting across a grassy plain. The horses and their riders were very thankful when the shifting sands of the Egyptian Sinai Desert gave way to firm ground underfoot, and the grass-cover of the southern border regions of the Ottoman Empire and southern Palestine. The first fresh grass that these horses had seen and eaten since leaving Australia was at Sheik Zowaiid on the edge of fertile grasslands of the coastal plain sixteen miles north of El Arish.

The rider wearing the identifying emu plumed slouch hat of the Australian Light Horse has obtained a cotton shirt, and the coat of his khaki woolen serge uniform is rolled and strapped behind the saddle. He has also procured for the comfort of his horse a fly veil, to help keep those ever present pests from his horses eyes.

Medium

This is painted in oils predominantly over an acrylic underpainting.
