This portrait is of the great steeplechaser Desert Orchid. This horse racing legend won an incredible 4 King George VI chase’s, an Irish National, a Cheltenham Gold Cup, a Tingle Creek Chase, a Whtbread Gold Cup and many many more major Grade 1 trophies.
The much loved hero of British racing retired in 1991 and lived to the ripe old age of 27.
This handsome, brave warrior is one of my all time favourite race horses and I loved drawing him. The original portrait was made in charcoal on A2 paper.
