So, if you’ve read my previous blog posts, you’ll know I’m a recent convert to the world of watercolours. Mainly because they’re so much fun!!!

I love how they look when they’re randomly splashed on the page and I finally tried it myself with this painting of a horse! It was equal parts exciting and terrifying because it’s so random (you never quite know how or where the paint will fall), but also fun.

After I painted the main areas of colour, I went over them with coloured pencils to fill in a few details. All in all, it’s rather fast working this way so I’ll definitely be creating more works like this.
