Secretariat

When I was young kid, I remember the amazing triple crown year of Secretariat, and how fascinated I was with the blue and white patterns on the blinker and jockey silks.
In this 8x10 watercolor of Secretariat, I didn't want to do a painting of Big Red in motion but perhaps capture a quiet walk to the the track or the gate.
I wanted the focus to be on the blue and white patterns of the blinkers, so I used warm colors everywhere so the blue would stand out.
