‘Max’ watercolour pony

I couldn’t resist painting a pony, I decided to make this one quick, with rough paint gestures for this pony, lots of fun, but difficult to rectify mistakes! His ear is wrong, and I tried to correct with black, and then add some black in other areas to even it out ( the harsh marks that is) although I do like my darks, including black, it really did not help this pony, nor did it solve his ear problem. Other than that I was happy, and enjoyed painting in a style I don’t usually do. I will try something like this again though, as I kinda like this look, but I will hide the black paint!

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.

  3. Why not crop the ear out if it really bothers you (although I can’t tell) – his nose is where the action is for me, the focal point! Great job!!

    • Now that’s an idea I had not considered, I will look and doing that when I get back from mucking out the ponies. Torn my hamstring, so can’t ride at the moment….sitting also a problem, which is why this technique was brilliant, stood up and faster than my usual style…others I have on the go are only I merging on the page at a snails pace, when they say rest, it’s easier said than done, especially with reliant animals. Have a great day
