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.

  2. Thank you, struggled with the legs….as I usually only paint heads,fortunately with the leg yield it has the advantage of pulling the paint to show some movement,perfect for poorly drawn anatomy! Planning on doing more horses in motion, to stretch myself, next time I will avoid masking fluid, as this ruined my painting from flowing the way I had intended….I don’t usually use the stuff, so maybe I didn’t use it correctly?


  3. This reminds me of something that should be framed and sold in a store. Wonderful vintage feel to it too. Great work, Rebecca. Your horses and compositions are wonderful!
