The jockey I drew here just won. Looking back at the others now, he’s safely across the finish line. It’s just a quick glance and a natural reflex, but there was something about the look that caught my eye. I love how the jockey’s backward glance quickly pulls me into the image. In an instant, I’m looking where he’s looking. I’m drawn into the action — every time. I used a very low angle to emphasize the action of the flying hooves and the ubiquitous mud. The red, black and white silks against Saratoga’s famous green surroundings looks so classic.
