The prancing horse

This is an acrylic painting on A4 Canson card (the frame is a mock up). It started out with a black background but I felt it would work better with some sky as it has the high contrast reflections.

The next design decision was to change the brake calipers from red to yellow. This was to make them stand out and also tie in with the yellow on the badge.

Since doing that I’ve since seen more real life examples with the yellow brakes so perhaps it was in my subconscious mind anyway.

The finished painting.
