Polo - II

So here is the second of the Polo series. This was even more difficult. I tried to get that action in this one. What do you think??
Title: Polo - II
Size: 16 x 20 inch
Medium - Watercolor on paper

p.s. I have tweaked the painting a little. Just undefined the rear hooves of the rear horse a little more. Thanks to Pat for the suggestion.

First of all I don't ever want to hear you say that you don't have good drawing skills, because no one without great drawing skills could pull this off. ANd second, I absolutely love it Prabal. The action is so compelling, this whole piece feels so vibrant and alive. MORE!! :)

These polo scenes remind me of the young Winston Churchill who was posted to India as a young Cavalry Officer.

Besides having two mounts he needed a string of Polo Ponies.

The polo tournaments were more important than the military campaigns! The regiments fought it out to the final, where the Bengal Lancers always thrashed them!

The 'Young Winston' autobiography is an excellent read and his love of India and anything Indian shines throughout.

I just love these pictures, Prabal ... sheer genius!
