‘Rhythm and bounce’horse jumping watercolour and Indian ink

Today has been really miserable, it has rained constantly, and HEAVY, all the little back roads were flooded, and many fields in the forest were under water. I am lucky, although our fields are mud, they are not under water, and my ponies come in every night, snuggled in their rugs, with Haynets ready. This morning I decided not to ride, as still in pain (torn hamstring). Instead I took Woody  in the school and lunged, plus a little bit of fun, lunging over a jump. Inspired I wanted to paint something to represent woody’s willing and focus, I went for slightly abstract, using Indian ink and watercolour. I didn’t want to spend time on a fussy background, nor too detailed as I can’t sit for long, and most was completed standing. So this is ‘rhythm and bounce’

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.
