Study - Edge of Town after winning at Ayr

Finished at last well a case of saying it's finished, but with every painting there is always something you can nibble and tweak at. This was inspired from photos I took a while back at Ayr Racecourse and is the Donald McCain trained Edge of Town. You might remember the wee painting "The Blues Boys" well that was him in the parade ring before the race, this is him cooling down after his win.
Now to decide what to do next I have  a few wee sketches ready to be taken further so might just be another horse.
Thanks for looking in.......

Turned out lovely. You have a knack for capturing that certain "look".
