This is a requested piece, it was taken from a photo showing a father with his first born, it was created using Indian ink with a brush, based on simple line work. ‘Blessed Beginnings’.
I allowed the ink to do its own thing, dripping and spreading in the directions it felt it wanted to go. I decided this to be the best style to paint from the photograph ( having painted it first in vibrant, watercolour, which I don’t think worked- see example).

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.
