The Flying Horse - Greeting Card

The Flying Horse - Greeting Card


Like a lot of young people, I grew up loving horses and taking any opportunity to ride them, read about them, draw them and dream about them. As an adult they’re probably one of my favourite art subjects and the fact that they’re really difficult animals to draw and paint makes them an animal I’m forever coming back to, to improve my skills! With this series of horse images, I could let my imagination take flight.

More so than unicorns and sea horses, my favourite mythical horse was always the flying horse. I loved stories about them, and my favourite was The Magicians Nephew (the first book in the Chronicles of Narnia) where the London cabbie horse Strawberry becomes an amazing flying horse. For that reason I chose a bay coloured horse, and one that looked like he was strong and agile enough to pull a cab through busy streets, but powerful enough to take to the air on his beautiful new wings.
