But I had such a good time meeting with like minded PRE enthusiasts and collecting lots and lots of reference materials for a new set of Spanish Horse paintings! More on that later!
Posting number three in the "daily" paintings series, where I get to experiment and paint whatever I fancy! It is also a great way to start the day, before moving on to the larger piecesthat I am working on. These pieces are all (so far) in acrylics which is a new medium for me. Or at lest one that I used a little when I was younger but could not get on with. Now I am really enjoying learning about the paint and how it handles and how to mix the colour palette I need.
This little one, 5" x 7" is a miniature shetland called Colossus, and belongs to a lovely lady called Debbie Wright who kindly allowed me to use her photo. Thank you Debbie. I loved the challenge of the unusual angle and soft colours, and enjoyed trying to capture this little chap's character so close in.
Debbie amongst many other things, - she is a talented lady! - breeds these cuties and you can see more of them on her blog, Hericus Miniature Shetlands
