Tessa’s portrait is nearly finished, just a few more shadows and minor adjustments needed before she is ready to be signed and framed. I havn’t used acrylics on watercolour paper before, but I have thoroughly enjoyed working on this Blue Lake paper (just as well because its expensive!) and will definitely be using it more in the future!
Its been quite a while since I have painted a horse in acrylics, but I have recently been inspired to paint my beautiful arab mare, Tessa. Actually, she is such an inspiring muse and I have had such fun painting this one that I have several more planned. This painting is 8″x13″ approx on Blue Lake Watercolour paper.
I’ve deliberately tried to work a bit looser with this, trying to find the happy medium between adding in enough detail without making it photorealistic. That is a much harder task than it might seem! Its nearly finished, just needing some more highlights, shadows and then a signature.
