Watercolour on Paper 2003

5 x 5 ins

private collection


A Watercolour Portrait Painting of a Horse. The composition

is very simple - a Horse's Head in profile. The style is more

Illustration than Photorealism Painting and the background is 

left as the pure white of the lightly textured Watercolour Paper.


The green harness halter of the Horse contrasts with its chestnut 

coloured coat and its dark mane. The Watercolour Washes were 

applied quite lightly, as it is all too easy to over-work Watercolors

and end up with muddy colours. A very finely pointed Sable Brush 

was used to pick out the details.


The Watercolour Paper is un-stretched Daler-Rowney Langton

and the Artists' Quality Paints used for this Horse Watercolor 

Portrait Painting are by Daler-Rowney and Winsor & Newton.
