Chauvet Horses on sandstone

Chauvet Horses on sandstone

This painting reproduces a panel of horses from the French cave Chauvet as I imagine it might have looked freshly painted 30,000 years ago. The majority of paintings in Chauvet cave, including these horses, are black. Grey was made by thinning the paint, rubbing off some pigment, or mixing stone scrapings together, for an affect that looks like it was done on rag paper rather than on raw rock.  I have worked as closely as i can to the original techniques in a smaller format.

Airbrush, sgraffito and hand brush and rubbing on silvery sandstone

Approx. size is 16” x 20”

  • About the stone...

    This stone is overall silver grey with subtle bands of sunset blush running diagonally through it. It has a lovely naturally weathered shape.
