Once more, Ross Watson has created a painting where we feel as if we’ve stumbled into it, wary we might be intruding on the solitary scene.  A young Light Horseman appears lost in thought, pausing to undress before his fine horse, which the artist observed at Buckingham on his last visit to London.

The Melbourne model Darcy wears a partial WWI Light Horseman’s uniform. He first modelled for Watson in 2018, and the resulting artwork Darcy, is one of the artist’s most popular erotic paintings to date.

Serenity and stillness permeate along with the great natural beauty of the setting, pristine tropical beach and distant mountains which inspired Watson on a past visit to Port Douglas in Northern Queensland, Australia.

Long dark shadows interrupt the bright afternoon light, which illuminates the simple yet strong composition of this superbly executed, and erotically charged artwork.
