Wishy washy watercolour horse

I started off with a plan in my head to create a mixed media horse, a little like the dog I did earlier in my blog. So to begin with I found a nice photo I had, and started putting down some paint. It turned out to be a very muted tone horse head, and to give it dimension I added some shadow, just slightly, I then got a little lost in my original intent, as I had not planed the lines and borders I wanted before stencilling in bright tones in a variety of pattern forms. I had left the painting on the side, for a week, looking at it frequently, and decided to leave as is, I did consider adding a more detailed eye, as it had dried to a very light tone, but have now decided it should be left. So it is as in my title a very wishy washy watercolour horse.

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

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.

  1. I think it’s wonderful and horses are tough!! This is beautiful. If it were mine I might punch up the color a bit but I love the shapes!

    Love it, I don’t think that it’s wishy washy at all, the muted tones are lovely.
