My watercolour puffin is now complete, I enjoyed painting him, but really should have left more white space I think, I am slowly getting to grips with a more free approach to painting. I did struggle with this technique when it came to the head and feet, finding my old style of painting detail in began to shine through, but practice practice practice, my next post is a better attempt of the dog in a free approach to painting.
Watercolour puffin for my mum, using a free approach to watercolour painting
My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow.
I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use.
I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

Thank you very much, I feel I am getting to what I hope to achieve ( by that I mean the style) keep practicing
I really like the puffin, it really captures the movement.
