Horse and Rider performing "The Courbette"The "Courbette"
This is a painting of a horse and rider performing the "Courbette" movement, where "the horse balances on its hindlegs and jumps, keeping its forelegs off the ground, thus it "hops" on its hindlegs" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_dressage). The crowd in the background is simply drawn as a collection of small dots, whereas the horse and rider are painted in more exquisite detail.
Painted in watercolors on watercolor paper
