This is a painting of a stunning horse just about to take off by rearing.
The dramatic pose is further punctuated by his flaring mane and tail and the cloak of deep orange red around his neck and shoulders really draws attention to his muscular strength and dynamism whilst contrasting with his beautiful face in blues, turquoise and soft violet hues. His head is tilting slightly inward and he is imersed in his own thoughts.
As one follows the line from his head gently curving downwards to his torso and then gradually into his muscular legs, there is a wonderful feeling of power and movement.
