16#worldwatercolormonth- when your mind is not on it, change the plan

Today’s painting really did not go to plan, my mind was not on the task, and I ended up over working, putting paint in unplanned areas, well generally a mess. After dry I did manage to pull it back a little into something I could vaguely accept.

However after deciding today was not a great painting day, but still wanting/ needing to paint ( weird I know) I decided to create some backgrounds ready for some hares etc for Hampshire open studio. This was great, playing with colour became relaxing, and enjoyable, and I had something useful for another day. Some of the backgrounds will be used with pastel, as I don’t expect watercolour will cover the amazing colourful creations. I would usually plan backgrounds by conserving the white space, but hey this was so much fun….for the record this was the wonderful dylon fabric dye that created the stunning effects.

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. you have a good plan going….always leave a painting day on a good note πŸ™‚ at least that is what I got from your post. I would imagine that painting a figure and a horse is difficult! both are hard….love those backgrounds.

  3. Your under-paintings look great, and I love the painted horse and rider. Though they are seemingly standing still, one still gets a sense of vitality and movement…lovely postures.
