The other day I took the dog (cassie) out for a long dog walk, in search of the pony herds on the forest, I was in too much pain to ride, but wanted to use the time constructively. It was a warm day, and not one pony was in sight, so I headed to some distant trees, hoping they would be sheltering from the sun. Eventually we found them, and the highland cattle. Sadly because it was so hot the ponies were in a very sedentary state, just standing head to tail swishing their tails, I really wanted a picture with many standing heads together, I did get a few, but the conditions were hard to work with, both extreme light and shadow bouching through the trees onto their faces. So today’s post is more of a portrait painting, which I am trying to step away from.

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.
