Back to work, week of painting and riding ends

So my week holiday has come to an end, not the best week for riding, -rain and cold, I did at least ride in the school on the odd day.

Lots of painting though, the benefits of bad weather, and the heating is on now. Hello WINTER. I have ended the week with three unfinished/ work in progress paintings, to be completed now in the evenings (late nights) !

These are two of the horses I did at the beginning of the week, not especially crazy about them, I lost motivation and rushed them, instead of downing the paint brush till a better moment arrived.

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.

    Both are glorious, but I LOVE Lusitano – the fantastic colours of the background give it a really magical feel.

  2. Thank you, that is interesting, and good to know as I prefer the top one…… Really angry with myself over the bottom one ( did not go to plan). Your comment really highlights to me the fact that we all see art differently, and at the moment I only see a painting that does not look how I intended it, you are seeing it as it is, with no preconceptions, only a choice to like or unlike. Cheers,as it was nearly binned.
