'Black Caviar' by Lynda Robinson

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

Pastel on Mi-Teinte Tex Paper – 55cm x 35cm approx.

The amazing racehorse, “Black Caviar” was born at Nagambie, only a few kilometres from where I live. She has won the hearts of many Australians, having created a record by winning 25 races from 25 starts. She was recently retired from the racing scene.

Due to the local interest in this horse, I decided to attempt a painting of her for our local Art Society Annual Exhibition. I used newspaper photos as reference, which I would never normally do, but the prospect of obtaining my own photo reference was fairly unlikely!!!!

Featured in Painters Universe – April 2013

I am a pastel artist living in country Victoria, Australia. My subjects vary, ranging from landscapes, portraiture, animal studies, figurative, life drawing, still life and I find the challenge of painting water particularly enjoyable.

    Is there no end to your talent! Horses, probably one of the most difficult subjects, but you have pulled it off brilliantly!

  • Aww Sue! Thanks for the great comment dear. I am so pleased you like it, because I wasn’t that excited about it really!!! LOL! I enjoyed the exercise, but not sure if it is a good painting.
