View Full Version : mule

I am usually in the pastel forum, as I seldom work with anything else. but hubs was in a ranch rodeo a few weeks ago and a nice lady allowed him to stay at her place, and keep his horse in her very nice stables too! didn't accept a dime for it, and she wasnt' even home that weekend! so he asked me to do a little card or something to send in thanks. here's what I came up with.

its only 5.7 or so, and I have just gotten a travel size set of wc's at walmart of all places, and I just had to try them! daler rowneys. tiny little cubes of paint in a tiny white box. so cute. perfect to have on hand always, and I thought the pigment load was pretty good, esp considering I only spent $12 for the 12 pan set!

Chewie, I LOVE this painting! I want to hug the mule. You have used that little set of watercolors beautifully.

thanks, making the receiver grin was my plan. she is a mule person, so I hope it worked! those little pans were fun too, I got them for sketchy stuff, something to have in my bag for those times you get stuck somewhere's, with nothing to do. sure worth the $12!
