New forest…… Highland cow? Yes we have them here too. Liptastic!

I usually paint animal seen in and around the New Forest, ponies, horses, donkeys, hares, cattle. You would not expect to see those hairy highlands here in the south of England, wrong, we have them too, grazing amongst the other four legged friends. I have had some lovely photos of them, with their magnificent horns. My favourite is one stood quite deep in a pond ( v large pond) the picture quality was not great on that occasion, as I was out riding early one morning and to capture the moment I had only my old mobile phone, sadly it is not a great image to paint from.

Here is a young highland, I have used watercolours and caran dache neocolour water soluble. He was lots of fun, and I needed a change from feeing BLUE….. Even if I do like my new colours, I needed a change, or everything would start looking the same!

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.
