This is positively my first watercolour horse I have ever painted! I did not allow myself to use pencil and whatever marks I made on the page, I had to live with. With my new mantra "Release", I figured it was time to release my inhibitions about painting a horse with watercolour, and give it my best try. I am going to name this horse, "Release"!
I looked off of a card given to me by a favourite local artist, Gena LaCoste (there is a link on the right side bar to her wonderful daily paintings), to guide me with possible colours I could use. Gena's passion is painting horses in watercolour. She expertly sees the colours and light that are really there and only uses primary colours.
I also only used primary colour in combination with a fine tipped black marker. There is something about watercolours and fine tipped black markers that makes my heart giggle! I think I am positively pleased with my first attempt. My next challenge is to pay attention to perspective, as usual. Oh well, have to start somewhere!....Release!
A little late to join the party, but I am linking the to Paint Party Friday! Happy March everyone and thank you for all of your support lately. You have motivated me to keep creating and trying new things...Release!
