Foinavon was the horse that won the 1967 Grand National with odds of 100-1, he started at the rear of the field, pretty much every horse in front of him fell at fence 23 (which is now named after him). We often meet customers at our shows who parents won quite a lot of money on that race!
I produced this painting using fluid acrylic paints, letting them drip down the canvas to produce abstract shapes, I then ‘found’ the horses within the paint, adding the jockeys once I had defined the field. The heads are the last thing I paint and I always do a leg and head check to make sure that there are enough horses for the riders!
