Maybe it’s because my parents were both painters that I find blank walls quite disturbing and bothersome. It makes me feel like I’m at the dentist or something equally unpleasant! So it’s my mission to help walls become beautiful whenever I can. I’m not a Banksy, going round in secret with my paints, but I definitely think large pictures are a great asset when there’s a big empty wall crying out for help.
A client recently bought one of my favourite new images of a mixed herd of horses kicking up dust in a pasture in the South of France. They are mares, both from the Camargue and Adalusians. Camargue mares are incredibly special and are not ridden as they are so vital to the maintenance of the breed. Because of the dust, the light around the herd has a really glowing appearance which is very interesting artistically.
Here’s a picture of the image
..and here it is in situ, framed and gracing the space that needed filling. The client says it has caused much interest and several compliments from his visitors. I’m thrilled to see it there and know that it has found such a good and welcoming home.
If you have a nice empty space, or a wall that needs a ‘change of outwear’ please go and have a look at my shop at www.katelloydphotography.com/shop where you can find both Limited Editions like this one and Open editions as well as Acrylics, which also give an image something of the glowing look this image has. Treat yourself or a friend with an empty wall, after all it’s nearly Christmas!
