|WIP 11 by 14 watercolor on paper|
A portrait I am working on. Horse and owner, a bit challenged with the owner part. I wont be able to share the whole painting till after Christmas. So challenging to get that likeness of painting to person. I think it must take lots and lots of practice sketches and paintings. But I am determined
to figure it out. Asked hubby for some watercolor portrait books for Christmas. Does anyone have a favorite book ?!
Love this story of the off track thoroughbred showing in his first Grand Prix
The horse is great! And as for portrait reference books, I recommend one by Mary Whyte, and another by Peggi Habets.
OK, thanks those are now on the top of the list Kathryn!Delete
I know what you mean about not being able to post until after christmas - I've got 3 paintings I can't post until after Christmas now - thanks for giving us this sneaky peak though! I was asked to do a pet portrait with the owner but I admitted to them that I wasn't as confident with human portraits so he let me off with just the pet thank goodness!ReplyDelete
Sharon, good luck with your Christmas portraits, I do love your animal portraits, you do amazing work. I will be watching to see how they turn out after Christmas. I AM determined to figure out this human species....one day..... ?!!Delete
The horse is looking good and I'm pretty sure you'll fathom the person out too :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Pat! I am nearly done with this, I think,And I have an update to post, then on to the canines :)Delete
Hello Maria:) I'm sure you will figure it out! Even without lots of practice:) I hope to see the finished painting after christmas!ReplyDelete

Oh, those humans are tricky......but I keep trying! Hope your week is wonderful as well.Delete
