Horse of a lot of colors!

Day #2 creature:  Doesn’t he look sweet.

We start by putting about 3 layers of random scribbly watercolor on the paper–don’t even think about what you’re doing.  After its all dry (I did 6 different papers) turn the paper in all directions until you see some part of an animal to start your drawing.  In this case I saw the shape of horse’s head and his left hoof that was turned in at a funny angle.  Then I just went with it!  I love how he looks all wobbly and way past his prime with his head hanging low–but ya gotta love him!  I think we’ll be doing more with these drawings tomorrow so I’ll post him if his looks change–but I really kind of like him the way he is 🙂

About artsynaturenut

I'm a creative warrior constantly fighting my battle with my muse against that nasty critic. I love to paint and do mixed media work either on the canvas or with art journals. I'll dabble in just about everything--bookmaking, photography, writing, etc. and get excited about combining them. Hence the mixed media!
