This was a commission to paint the rapper Drake with family and friends to exact specifications from a friend of his. It was unusual and the photos were very small and informal, so challenging. It was presented to Drake during his UK tour in 2015 and is now in his home in LA.
While driving with friends in the West of Ireland, I spotted these two beauties in a nearby field and shot off to photograph them; deaf to the outraged cries of my companions on whom I apparently unleashed a million midges as I went! These ponies were extremely curious and friendly and I am on a promise to return with carrots, since they posed here for free!! The work is on block canvas painted all around the sides, so no frame is required. It is very three dimensional in impact.
