Description

The last in the Carousel series, 'Roma'.

These two sturdy steeds will take you to Rome. The capital of Italy. I researched the different military dressing that was used during ancient Roman times and chose elements of these to give it a more masculine feel. I wanted to create a work that would represent a strength and authority that would be appropriate for a name like Roma. I chose to include the wooden planks of the carousel giving it a sense of age. No plastic here! With the strong stance of the horses, I wanted to create a sense of urgency, of about to engage in battle.

Again I used gauche as well as watercolour to give a more intense colour and then using pencil to refine the lines.
