Beautiful work!  I love the details and how you let the watercolor make pretty textures at the bottom of the painting.

I do think you're quite skilled for a "beginner" and I agree completely with you about a watercolor being better in reality I never seem to catch it in a good light. Keep it up

Absolutely beautiful.
THis medium is fantastic, and you really used it with class and absolutely precision .
The colours and blending is just fantastic... and the way it washes into the background is soothing. Great work hun!

this is so beautiful!
I have not painted many horses now but I think they are way harder to catch than expected and you drew it so stunning!

I love this it's beautiful, and brings back memories, because I used to paint horses all the time when I used to spend a lot of time at a barn. you've inspired me to pick up my pencil and draw one again!
