medieval knights jousting horses historic art skateboards
The design on this brightly coloured skateboard deck is one of my favourite paintings, it's titled "The Four Knights of The Forest Festival." I painted it from a photograph that I took when I was at the Forest Festival on Chingford Plains in the UK. The festival is on every year and it celebrates all things to do with the historic Epping Forest. On two of the years that we attended we were lucky enough to see the re-enactment of a traditional joust between four knights, each knight was representing his "kingdom." I captured the photograph as the knights were parading around the jousting area and I couldn`t wait to paint it. The Black Knight went on to achieve a glorious victory over the other three knights. I think this original realist English jousting image looks great on this skateboard and will be a great gift for someone special. The original artwork is worked in soft pastel. This is a customizable skateboard, you can personalize it with your own text.
The original knights on horseback painting has been digitally enhanced to give it a full vibrant colour effect for this deck.
