A watercolour of riders on a beach, but with an air of mystery. This is multi layered work - the more you look the more you see and question.
Who is the ghost? Is it necessarily the rider with the banner? If so why is his/her shadow much darker? And has only one shadow.Is it the middle rider with the mysterious partner at the back? Or the front one who is very dark but has a very insubstantial shadow? where are they going? Are they in fancy dress?
I enjoyed doing this painting and it became more mysterious the more I painted it.
I got the idea from a photograph of riders on wet sand and immediately wanted to explore its meaning and create an air of mystery and questions.
