Fairground Horse Restoration,Today.

I love painting and restoring fairground rides,stalls and showfronts. I thought it would be interesting to put a selection of photographs showing the various styles of restoration happening today. As you can probably tell, I do favour the old traditional look, but it's interesting to see a wide variety of styles.
Horses decorated by John Pockett and KBMorgan
Above- These are the first horses that I decorated working with John Pockett. The photograph makes them look pale but they were much creamier.

Below, original old paint in pretty good condition at Dingles..
Below- A modern new minimalist look.

30 horses painted white, inspired by a Louis Vuitton pastel painted carousel.
