‘Grazioso’ means graceful in Italian which perfectly sums up this beautiful grey horse.
I have chosen a cool palette and colour has a special meaning – almost a second language to me as each colour communicates to me. The colours are serene which I hope invokes a calming effect when looking at this painting. Despite the fact that the horse is moving, it’s posture is considered and controlled.
