As if in a fleeting hurry, the movement of the horses is fast, energetic, enduring and constant with complementing colours highlighting the essence of his elegant subjects with an image of the wild plateau in mind.
The colours he identifies for his paintings are never dull; in fact, Lim has a penchant for choosing colours that are pleasing and of gradual toning.
He does this by working on various sketches and experimenting with colours, and only when satisfied does he move on to his bigger project.
Lim tends to stress on colour and the composition of his stallions, rather than the horses themselves, as the familiarity of abstract art has settled into his veins that he paints effortlessly.
He has painted horses for well over 15 years, because, in his words, the horse is "poetry in motion when it gallops".
