13#worldwatercolormonth a study of lottie

This is a couple of fairly quick pieces of work, one watercolour,the other is graphite on Kraft card. I have been busy with the oils creating ( hopefully) a large horse head, of Bettie 1mX1m, so my energy is being pushed in that direction for the next week or so, ….getting into the oil zone again! I will still post watercolours, but will do something quickly in the evenings. I am trying to sort and or paint works for the Hampshire open studio, so busy busy, with work and ponies also fitted in, will I have time? Hopefully πŸ˜€ These are my lottie studies.

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. For me, in addition to your hares and rabbits, your horse sketches are truly wonderful to see-you capture their individuality, their grace and movement-I always look forward to seeing these!

    ^ I agree, these are always a treat – the graphite sketch in particular is breathtaking; such movement but still so soft, and the whites really bring her out. Lotti is incredible!

  4. Once again, I’m lost in admiration, Rebecca. I can’t pick a favorite and I’m still agog that you did that watercolor “fairly quick”. The drawing alone is just … wow. I just love the way you paint, the way you draw, you strike a perfect balance because we can tell you’re familiar with the subject, you’re relaxed and running with the horses, we can feel that and we love it! When I see someone with your skill & talent, I’m just … pretty much running out of words. Especially with horses, we all know and love them but until you try drawing them, really try to draw a horse from a reference and get them to match, only then do you realize how difficult it truly is. Just stunning results, as usual, and I really need to remind myself that even though I’m used to seeing this from you on a constant basis!!! I’m becoming spoiled. Just beautiful!

    • Thank you, she was very alive the day I took the photos, bucking and running about, shame my camera skills were not Upto speed, using a new lens meant I missed some of the good action. More practice needed, as the lens zoom works the opposite way to my old one, so I was zooming out when I wanted to go in closer, hey ho!

    • Well an hour each ish I only had 2 and a half hours with getting stuff out etc I probably was painting drawing for two hrs. I usually take much longer, maybe average 3 hrs, and some I go back to the following day for completion. I think with this lottie in watercolour I was less careful and some of the paper was still wet, so the paint spread to areas I had not intended, I just didn’t have the waiting time. It didn’t matter really, I knew it would happen as I was rushing πŸ˜€ so pleased you like them πŸ‘
