I adore Carousel animals and used to draw them all the time. Eventually, I sort of petered off on it but returned to my roots earlier this year with this painting. It's loosely based on a Philidelphia Toboggan Company horse but I've added lots of extra bits! This one is 16x20 gouache, watercolour and ink on illustration board. Prints available and so is the original.

I saw this picture on google  years ago, and fell in love with it! I had, at one point, printed it off and pasted it on my wall. It disappeared in a move, but I'm so glad to have found it again! It's absolutely beautiful! You did such a good job with all the details. Wow! I am a dummy! Clap

Gorgeous, colours work well and contrast against the black of the horse and peacock design is brilliant. Just striking!!!

Would like to use something like this, or this design for a tattoo (on myself) Hbruton?

Amazing works.

O wow, I used to draw a lot of carousel horses but then for some reason I never did. I love the peacock design and the horse is beautifully done along with the lovely details.

This is beautiful. I'm actually getting ready to do an animation of a carousel as prep for an animated short I want to make. Would you mind if I use this as a reference?
