Arabian - watercolour by NutLu Arabian - watercolour by NutLu
Second attempt at watercolour and im still having so much fun! :eager: :excited: I know there probably is a huge amount of beginner mistakes in there but im happy with this none the less :D

Wish I could get a good photo of it , even though i hate to say it , it looks so much better in reality *sob*

Critique and feedback is very welcome! :heart:

Made with:
Van Gogh watercolours on fabriano paper
white pastel pencil

Original size: 30,5 x 45,5

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!

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!
