Donna Crawshaw

Donna Crawshaw SEA SWA was born in Woking, Surrey, England in 1960 - and perhaps it was inevitable that she became an artist with her father being the established painter, author and broadcaster Alwyn Crawshaw. The foundation of learning for her art came from her father who encouraged her from a very early age and later at school where she excelled in art related subjects and sold her first painting. Later she attended the West Surrey College of Art and Design at Farnham but decided instead to leave after her foundation year to concentrate on her paintings which were already in great demand. So, at the age of only seventeen, Donna became a professional artist and her paintings were soon snapped up by galleries as well as private and corporate buyers. Her talent and potential was recognised by many and soon her distinctive paintings of animals and rural scenes became well known. Her choice of media includes acrylics, watercolours and pastels but her work is also available as collectors prints, greetings cards and on Royal Worcester porcelain. Her pictures often tell a story, indicating her attention to detail as well as her love for her subject. With a keen interest in the countryside and its inhabitants as well as a sound knowledge of the anatomy of animals Donna paints with accuracy and sympathy to her subjects. Whether it be a Shetland pony or a Shire, a terrier or a black Labrador or even trout lazing under river weed Donna studies her subject carefully. She has gained an enviable reputation as a leader in the field of animal paintings and has won a number of prizes and awards for her work. The artist now lives and works in a beautifully situated farmhouse on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons in Wales looking onto the Carmarthen Fans and the Black Mountain. This choice of location was no accident as it gives Donna easy access to her chosen subjects and she is often found down country lanes sketching old farm buildings, sheep, cattle and even wildlife, returning home to her studio to complete the paintings. Donna is a regular exhibitor in many leading galleries and exhibitions and is a valued member of the Society of Equestrian Artists and the Society of Women Artists.

 Depicting the Light Brigade at the moment of reaching the Russian guns. Shown are the 11th Hussars and the 17th Lancers.  The all time classic image of the disastrous  Charge of the Light Brigade which included the 17th lancers, who lead the charge.  Lord Cardigan is shown on the left, dressed in his 11th Hussars uniform.   The Light Brigade were being kept in reserve, after the successful charge of the heavy brigade, but the slow advance of the British Infantry to take advantage of the heavy brigades success had given the Russian forces time to take away Artillery pieces from captured redoubts.  Raglan, after seeing this ordered the light brigade to advance rapidly to the front, follow the enemy and try to prevent the enemy carrying away the guns. This message taken by Captain Nolan, to Lord Lucan, the cavalry Commander.  One of the Officers of Raglans Staff, urged Lucan, who could only see the main Russian Artillery position at the head of a valley.  Lord Lucan rode over to Cardigan and ordered him to attack these guns.  So the Light Brigade charged these Russian guns, and not the guns being taken away by Russian forces from the redoubts. The carnage was great, from the 673 men who started the charge, 113 men were killed and many others wounded. The Light Brigade was made up of the 4th and 13th Light Dragoons, 8th and 11th Hussars and the 17th Lancers. A spectating French Officer General Pierre Bosquet proclaimed - It is magnificent but it is not war.

 Battle of Hydaspes. Porus had a very large army which included 200 war elephants. The battle saw a charge by the elephants, against the Macedonian forces, which began to look successful. Seeing this, Porus Cavalry charged, against Alexanders cavalry (in this period it was very unusual to have cavalry contact) The elephant charge began to falter and the battle edged towards victory for Alexander. Due to his admiration of Porus as a leader, Alexander granted him honourable terms and built an alliance with him. His army was not so fortunate, with 3,000 cavalry lost and 20,000 infantry killed.
