The following abstract paintings were part of a series I had painted after attending Australia’s famous racing season at Flemington Racecourse 2008. I had the opportunity to attend both Derby Day and the Melbourne Cup; both famous horse racing days! I was inspired to take a range of photos on both these days, which I used as a source of inspiration for the four abstract paintings below. Whilst these horse racing days are very much about the horses and the horse races, it is also about the amazing fashion statements made by both men and women, especially lady’s hats! Hence came my desire to do this series of abstract painting portraits as seen below.
I have featured each of these paintings in previous posts, along with their photo inspirations and their particular painting stories under ‘I Do Art Discussions’. Please click on the following links for full details about each abstract painting, painting stories and digital photo inspirations:-
