Spirit of CheltenhamThe inspiration behind this epic painting was the artist's desire to recreate the unique atmosphere of Cheltenham Racecourse, to embody the ‘spirit’ of the home of jump racing.
February Gallops'February Gallops' is a tour de force of colour, from the cloudless blue sky that stretches above the leafless trees, to the dormant winter grass wrapped in a golden blanket of early spring light. Here we see racehorses in morning training thrown into sharp relief as they gallop towards the sun.
Evening ThunderIn this painting Brett seeks to convey the feeling of exhilaration that we experience from watching horses in motion. We witness the excitement and drama of the field approaching as one, like a tidal wave, set against the uncertainty of a stormy summer evening.
Dawn RaidMeasuring 26 by 54 inches, this oil painting depicts a pair of racehorses working on Newmarket Heath early on a summer morning. The waking sunrise drenches the landscape in orange light, illuminating one side of a deserted Millenium Grandstand on the Rowley Mile.
Final FurlongThe view across Epsom Downs towards the racecourse winning post is one of the most beautiful and instantly recognisable sights in flat racing. The final moments of the last evening meeting of summer are dramatically captured in this stunning oil painting.
BayBrett’s ‘head and neck’ equestrian portraits need little explanation. This painting of a Bay warmblood is produced with great sympathy and skill, resulting in an equestrian portrait that is packed with character and personality.
