So the weather has been torrential downpours….. Not that I am complaining too much, it is England! We like to talk weather. It goes from one extreme to the next, having had no rain for weeks, the fields have become bare, no growth, and burnt off what is left of the grass, so I have been putting hay out in the summer. To suddenly due to the Gulf Stream, we have had constant rain for almost two days, and it looks like a lake has emerged in the ponies field ( well a big puddle). So to make the most of the un-rideable weather, I set to painting another beast, an American Saddlebred, it turned out a little cartoon like, I think I concentrated too much,and reverted back to some old ways, but it was a good way to spend a wet Sunday.
American Saddlebred golden dun, watercolour
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.

You are being so prolific with paint!
I aim to paint as often as possible, average two a week, at the moment, and usually end up painting until the early hrs, I have not been achieving the time lately, due to my bad back, and as I stand and paint it is not good, especially late at night after busying around all day with work and horses, that’s why I don’t mind rainy days 😃
