‘Fabian Policy’ watercolour horse

I really enjoyed the last horse I did, with splashes of paint, so I decided to create another, but this one is larger, 20×14″ 140 lb Langton 100% cotton rough ( I usually work on 16×12″).

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.

    • Thank you, mmmm funny you should ask, I don’t generally because I really can’t afford the luxury, they just get filed away in a folder. But my dad has suggested I go to a warehouse nr us that are picture framers, but wholesale only? I will see if they can offer me any suggestions, probably not as I am not a business. I am considering getting a print done, and see if it sells, really to test the water. Friends and family are always polite and give wonderful biased feedback, but it does not mean people want to hang my work on their wall, I think that is what I need to find out really.

      • Another option is to buy a print of your work in the size you find a frame for that you get inexpensively (say an old framed picture that you can dismantle and just use the glass and frame itself?) or a frame on sale somewhere. Yes, definitely could sell your animal portraits and work. You are a fine artist!

    • Thank you Sharon. I am pleased you say that, as I plan to make the horses less like the photo of friends horses, and more generic, capturing the horse soul and mystic. I have a wonderful photo of my friends mare, we lost her three years ago, so I have put it off, I think I can do it now😀She had a beautiful foal, and then 24 hrs later she was found dead. Luckily we found a surrogate mother for the foal. The foal( now 3yrs) is being broken in to ride, so to paint the pair would be lovely.

  4. Horses are hard and this is another stunner, Rebecca. Really well done, I definitely think you could sell something like this. Seriously, so hard to do. I see no flaws. 💜💜💜
