‘Chico’ ink and watercolour A4

This is my friend janes’horse ‘Chico’ he is gorgeous, and my fav colour, so it was lovely to paint him. I managed to get some great action shots of him prancing around the field, which is great as I want to incorporate much more movement and action into my horse art. The first painting is oil, the second a small A4 ink and watercolour. My next plan is to do a really large narrow oil painting, with a part of Chico showing…..just got to try and find the best way to make him fit on the odd sized canvas…..or go and take some more photographs.


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.

  1. Man, your horses rock! I can’t pick a favorite. Really impressive, the movement in the second piece. I can almost feel him pounding the ground!! I hope you’re pleased with them.

    • Thanks Debi, it also is a great advert if found on Google, or Pinterest, sometimes it can be a troublesome journey to find somethings original website home. I have heard that people have discovered their art work has been used on t shirts, etc, without their knowledge? As I have not discovered the how to sell bit yet, I don’t want someone else beating me to it? Love to the horses❤️❤️

        I’ve been happy with Society 6 so far. and I hear you, about someone “beating you to it”… it happened 😦 while I don’t mind someone pinning my images! selling what I’ve designed/created, is just plain Piracy.

      • Oh no that’s awful, have you heard of art finder? I am thinking of producing some work to sell there, instead of painting just for fun.

        no? art finder… will look it up though.
        and yes, as long as our work is “online” we really need to ‘beat these guys to the punch!’ and start putting the work into several shops. all over. so whoever sees something similar, recognises it…. as Ours. not “Joe’s”
