Hard earned strength

'' Hard earned strength " is painted from images I collected from the Barellan working Clydesdales and heavy horses good old days weekend 2017 in New South Wales.  I revisited this team hauling the wool bales, I love the challenge of achieving the sense of depth, and the challenge of subtly leading the viewer to concentrate on the horse in the lead on the right, and then deciding what other minimal information needed to go into the background to enhance the story.
