painting for Irish Olympic rider Mark Kyle

🏆🇮🇪 Irish Olympic rider MARK KYLE and his three Olympic and two Word Equestrian Games team of horses 🇮🇪🏆I can finally reveal a piece I have been working on for the past six weeks.. its been an honour for me to get this commissioned in first place and even bigger honour to be invited to present painting in person at Mark’s 50th Birthday party. ” I have no words.. ” was first comment from the birthday boy.. this is literally best compliment I could ever receive as an artist.. I really enjoyed working on this complex composition, from photos gathered in family albums and news archives. I am not going to lie I love this painting and how it turned out taken old photos. it’s been a challenge and I done it with smile from beginning to the end 🙂
Many thanks to Gillian & Johnny Kyle for entrusting me this very special piece to do!
