Lakeside horse

Hi everyone, I'm spending the week at my parents' house in the Laurentians.  The weather has been amazing and I have been painting on the porch everyday in between swims. Image

Here is what I've been working on with some more step by step pictures.

Image

I started with a quick sketch.

I began laying in colour.

I painted the background by layering some washes of green colour.  With my mom's help, we decided this horse would go well with daisies.  I began painting petals and stems.

Next I added black outlines with a sharpie to help define my lines and shapes.

 

 

Lastly, I added leaves, highlights, and more black lines.  Hope you like this new horse and that you are having a great summer.  Cheers, B
