You might notice that this horse looks vary familiar. In fact, he is the star of one of my oil paintings, "Silver Dancer". I love the pose so much that I had to see what it would look like in a watercolor piece. This one gives him more of an abstract feel vs the strict realism of the other. It is good to challenge yourself to do something more with what you have before you.
All of my watercolor paintings are done with quality watercolor pigments and on recycled watercolor paper. What this means is the paper, though new to me, was constructed out of recycled materials rather than "new" paper. Watercolors are fascinating to work with as they are not as forgiving of mistakes. However, they also allow for a more impulsive creation that often doesn't look exactly the way my perfectionist mind would like. This is one reason watercolors in my shop are so rare. You will never see the ones that I didn't approve of!
Instructions on cleaning and hanging your watercolor will come with your personally signed Certificate of Authenticity. Watercolors must be under glass and displayed away from direct sunlight for best preservation of color.
