11#worldwatercolormonth ‘lottie’ two year old warmblood painted with dylon fabric dye and watercolour

Todays post is another using the dylon fabric dye. I managed to get out and try a different camera lens, taking photographs of my friend James’ horses, lottie and Chico ( both warm bloods) -hopefully I will get out to try it a little more during the week, but for the short time today I was quite impressed with the results it gave me. For this painting I wanted to restrict my palette of colours to just four of the dylon shades, tulip red, burlesque red, yellow, brown, ( it was hard not using my usual brown palette). I also used a watercolour white, to change the shades of dylon fabric dye.

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.
