‘Leopard Spotted Horse with Dalmatians in a Landscape’ - Ripley 2017
Set in the quintessentially English landscape of the parkland at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire - designed by English landscape architect Capability Brown - the image portrays a Leopard Spotted Horse (Tornado af Knabstrup) at the centre of a group of twenty-three Dalmatians.
Planning and primary photography for this large-scale piece was completed throughout 2015/16, and the final picture composed between January and April 2017.
Over 500 hours of finely detailed work, the image contains many technical elements and is a composition of 60 individual ultra-high-resolution, medium-format images, 50-100mp at 16bit; 23 x Dalmatians, 1 x Leopard Spotted Horse, 36 x sky and landscape. Scale: 26,991 x 11,998 pixel (see; method).
"Excited by the originality of this artist's work. Such a feel of the equine master painters but without a shadow of pastiche. Using modern methods to create a wholly new art form. Deepest respect"
