Carousel Horse

I did a version of this in a different format. I love the image and the colour. It is so wonderfully old fashioned, and it is a ride I would have no trouble getting on. I really enjoyed painting the gilt frames around the mirrors - for me it required a lot of conscious layering of dark and light tones. It was quite technical.
