This is where I left off from the last post. Just getting started on the folds in the five saddle
sash….(whatever it’s called! Haha)
And working the cylinder of the boots and the folds of the pants.
If I remember correctly from my last horse….I’ll be bringing in India Ink to get those blacks darker. Watercolor is very translucent. It gets pretty redundant to keep adding black watercolor on top of black watercolor and it still won’t get as dark as you think it should be.
I’ve gotta be careful here, because I have about 7 tubes of various blue watercolors, and some of them are on the more turquoise side.
The horse and jockey are coming together well, so far. I tend to save the really hard parts for last, like the body of the horse.

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
