#1 world watercolour month

July is here, world watercolour month, I am short of time, and have a back log of art to post, so this is quick, thank you Charlie at doodlewash for inviting us all to join in with this celebration. Today I will be catching up with all my blog posts, and hopefully painting too 😀

The study of the first was done on my hand made claybord, I used ink and scratched into the board. To make the clay topping I used kaolin clay ( powder form) pva glue, and some white acrylic. It was a quick trial, I have many more boards created to try out some more experiments. At the least they work as great scratch boards if you cover them in black ink. I was not content with leaving this horse study, so at a silly time in the late evening I decided to start a watercolour and ink horse on normal watercolour paper,- my small arches block. Happy watercolour month everybody, have painty fun❤️

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.
