Hunters at rest Period-style portrait painting by Andrew Hunt
(Acrylic on canvas) ‘Hunters at rest’, as one of my period-style paintings, is set with a soft, early morning light, just as the sun starts to break through. It includes the classic 18th Century landscape elements of rockface, carefully composed trees and long distance views.The bay and grey horses are both well groomed with braided manes, in heightened contrast with the otherwise natural surroundings.
‘Hunters at rest’ was exhibited at ‘The New Georgians’ exhibition, Orleans House Gallery, Twickenham
Quote from Exhibition visitor - Niamh Mac Gowan, Printmaker & Interior Stylist: "one of my favourites from the show!" ________________________________________________ Some reference shots of hunters that I’d taken at a recent show, proved ideal for including within this painting. The magnificent old oak tree was one I came across on a local golf course.
