As a web designer, I help promote everything to do with horse betting and horse culture here in Sweden. My office is right next to the national trotting track (Solvalla) and so I see horses every day. It struck me a while back that they are just as interesting to study and draw as humans, such elegant creatures. I dedicated this weekend to drawing and painting them, to see if I could be as good as Joseph Zbukvic! No chance, I have a number of apprentice years left I’m afraid. I had fun doing them though, the weekend just zipped by. For all three paintings I used photos as reference care of Kanal 75.

My name is David Meldrum, I love painting watercolours. Another passion I have is life drawing, I run a class called Meldrum Kroki. I was born in Ireland but since 1990 I have lived in Stockholm, Sweden.
