Gazing Horse [2020] Original Landscapes and seascapes Oil paint on canvas Image size: H:30 cm x W:30 cm Complete Size of Unframed Work: H:30 cm x W:30 cm x D:2cm Sold Unframed Please note that insitu images are purely an indication of how a piece may look ‘Gazing horse’ is an original oil painting by Georgie Dowling. This painting depicts a bay horse in their field gazing on at something in the distance on a summers day. The piece has a lot of texture with varied marks and layers of paint building up the shape of the horse and the surrounding landscape. The process of using a palette knife gave the sense of sculpting the shape of the horse, making it an interesting and useful way to study the shape of the animal. 'I'm an artist based in Gloucestershire exploring the beauty of the British landscape through my oil paintings. I grew up in West Wales surrounded by rolling hills and fields which undoubtedly plays into my fascination with them. Having moved to Cheltenham to study Fine Art I have now based myself there to continue my artistic career. With the Cotswolds on my doorstep I am never short of inspiration. Inspiration comes to me while exploring the British landscape, sourcing colours and shapes that give me a sense of place. The feeling of stability and stillness that the view of a familiar landscape brings is what draws me to work with this subject matter. The process of reproducing the view brings me the same feeling of stillness I felt whilst I was there. I’m fascinated by the relationship between the natural and man-made lines and forms in the landscape and how the two come together to create a harmonious aesthetic. I find myself drawn to the patterns of trees and hedgerows or structures of walls and paths that define the shapes in our landscape. The effect animals have on the perception of a landscape is also something I am beginning to explore; characterful sheep or a dozing horse can alter the mood of the view that is being portrayed, making them a useful and interesting tool in conveying the feel of the day.​Reference images are taken on walks or horseback as I'm wandering through familiar places and noting the patterns I pass; these then follow me into my home studio where the work is produced. The application of thick paint with a palette knife gives me a sense of sculpting the landscape allowing me to revisit the details I spotted. My work gives me the chance to explore the landscape as I see it from a distance.'
