Gouache. 11 by 15 ins lana watercolour paper.

I was going to do a brown realistic horse (did the drawing and everything but tore it up). I really wanted to do a green horse and so here is the result.

A fantasy horse really!!

Yes, yes, YES! Love the fantastic horse! :)

And, you're a fast worker!

sigh. I've been on almost an hour, still haven't commented on everything, but there've been 4 attempts on my system and the firewall's working too hard, so I'll have to return later. I'll try to say more about the abstract... make that 5 attempts... later.

This is soooooo cool !! The eyes, ears and nostril contours give no doubt that this is a horse, and he's got element of his paddock, fence, and grass around him, as well as those bright colours I'm interpreting as the 'silks' the jockeys wear on race day !! I easily get the whole story here, instead of just a sentence ! I love it !! :clap: :clap:

Many thanks for all the kind comments. I certainly enjoyed doing this fantasy horse. It reminded me of feeding horses as a child.

Check my new post. I did a realistic brown one. It was satisfying in a different way.

The patchwork was FUN!!

Cheers all. I'm off to see the other art for this wde.
