I am loving the pastels and charcoal at the moment, so I added them to this watercolour. This is a cremello called Annie, my friend used to own her, she was used as a brood mare, but sadly never produced a foal. She was beautiful. The cremello is a cream colour with blue eyes. They are a little like marmite, you either love or hate them! I think the blue eyes put many people off their appearance …..those that don’t mind that adore them, and I am one of those! They have sensitive skin, and suffer with sun burn in the summer months, therefore needing extra care and attention. The irony to the story is, after she was sold, the new owner contacted my friend to say she had produced a foal, to the new owners stallion. Annie always did things on her terms and

when she was ready! I did not get a chance to see her foal, but I am sure it was beautiful ( it would be about 6-7 years old now!
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.
