Picking up the pastels after a month of watercolour fun


Pastel on tinted pastel paper A3 ‘ when mum arrives’

Worried that I might have forgotten how to use many of my other mediums after a great month of watercolour, I grabbed the pastels out of the box ( I am back on some large oil paintings, but pastel is a great quick filler to do in the evenings, while the oils dry). I am quite into the horses at the moment, so sorry folks it’s another equine πŸ˜€


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.

    Awesome! I like how he’s galloping into view almost, indicative of the medium itself coming back into play. πŸ˜‰ And to echo everyone else, I could never tire of your horses! Bring ’em on! πŸ™‚
