Living in the new forest I am so lucky to be surrounded by so much wildlife. The new forest ponies are a great source of many painting, but also the donkey’s. At this time of year the donkey foals are appearing, and they are just so cute ( my pony paddy does not agree, feeling they are seiously weird with their big ears, his eyes pop out on storks, and he snorts loudly as he grows to what he believes is a big brave thoughbred- funny for a 25 year old boy) Here is my first donkey watercolour, it’s a pity the photo wasn’t better, as I could not get a better eye, but I am happy enough. Plan is to paint one of the cute babies next.

- Inky horse, sketchy. Black Diplomat ink. Despite this ink being a very weak black tone it, has great shading ability. Today I used a smooth thin card, rather than watercolour paper to see the difference in behaviour of the ink. I love the way the ink lays down, however the paper quality is poor, so I have curling and buckling as it can’t cope with water. I guess if I invest in a heavier gsm smooth paper it could work, I did not want to use smooth watercolour as too absorbing of water, so I don’t believe would create as good a shading effect? I think an experiment is needed 😀#diplomatink #inkpainting #horseink
