Watercolour donkey- Oboe donkey whisperer farm

I am so in love with donkey’s at the moment, we have lots of babies on the forest, so I took my camera out and snapped away, so so cute, here is a sneaky peak of the cuteness.

Baby donkey on the new forest, pure cuteness

But my painting was inspired by the donkey whisperer farm, who do some wonderful work, and have much larger donkey’s than the ones that graze the new forest. Melody asked if I could paint her donkey’s, I was nervous but thought I would try, donkey whisper farm has a great Facebook page and Instagram,as well as their blog. credit is given to Melody Johnson Photography, Donkey Whisperer Farm, Please check out their site, see link below.


I hope to try and paint more for her in the future, but having problems with a poorly kitty at the moment, so feeling overwhelmed with life in general ( I think stress has caught up with me, as spent the night in A&E with heart palpitations and tight chest) .


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.

  3. Oh I am so pleased, I thought it was him with his distinctive ears, the photo quality from your FB page was not great to paint from, and his photo was one of the best to use. So pleased you like it, I am loving donkeys at the moment, actually I didn’t see the herd today when we went out riding, only new forest ponies. What is your lovely giant donkey classed as, by that I mean is there a breed type? Or did it just kind of happen that way, is the giant one melody? I can’t get over her size, how big, and great to see her being ridden. I love mules too, but I think they are much more popular in the USA than here in the UK, we had one born on the forest couple of years ago to a pony mare, the poor thing is bottom of the pecking order, within the herd, it is often removed from the forest during winter months, to a safe field, as are most of the forest donkeys. Although everything is wild, they are all owned, and branded to owners with grazing rights ( comes with properties and passed through generations. Very interesting, if you ever visit the UK, I can recommend the new forest ( biased) ! Xx
