Caroline Towning art presents: horse riding presents, horse wall decor, horse canvas art, horse art prints and equestrain gifts for her.
I am a London based equine artist, I originally grew up in North Yorkshire surrounded by horses, dogs, and the countryside and have had an obsession with drawing horses ever since I was a young child. After a long career as a computer animator working in television and film.
I decided to follow my dreams and try and make it as a full-time equine artist, it was what I had always wanted to do and I thought that now was the time to take the leap of faith.
I set up a home studio and started drawing and painting horses, the most incredible journey started to open up to me, as I started to post what I was doing online people responded to me and started asking me for commissions and drawings. 3 years on I have painted princes, families, lots of horses and so many dogs that I have lost count.
I am currently working on a series of oil paintings for an exhibition in 2018 and continue to take on commissions and offer prints online.
Making gifts for horse lovers, horse art prints and horse riding presents from the passion and obsession with horses.
I have been obsessed with drawing and painting horses from since I was a young child. I work from my home studio in London creating horse canvas wall art from scratch. I tend to work on large-scale paintings. Each horse painting can take between 3 and 6 months to complete. I always start with a series of watercolor horse sketches. This is to the get the feel and the movement of the horse correct. Once I am happy with these I then start on the horse canvas art. I work on the backgrounds first, I believe that the background is just as important as the horse itself. Once the base layer of the background is complete I then do the base layer of the horse. Once the base layers are done, I then build multi-layers of detail on top. The detail layers are what then takes the most time as I can just keep adding endless detail to the horses and background. Once a painting is complete I then sell the original, and I get it photographed so that I can make limited and open edition prints.
