I am working on two larger horse portraits, but after working on my sketches for a while, I really needed to see some color!

    1. Oh thank you Diana, it is fun to paint something other than horses, and water is my arch enemy, I will conquer him yet :)

  8. This lovely watercolour really appealed to me, I have a photograph of a mallard duck ready to paint with gorgeous reflections and this painting reminds me of it. Really lovely Maria

    1. Thank you so much Sharon! I just loved the colors from the photo, kind of nice to paint in bright colors, my horse and pet paintings are mostly earth tones.
