Arabian horse, little narrower than A4, Fabriano sketch paper, Winstor & Newton watercolors, Reference by
I am so excited about this one! This might very well be my best watercolor so far! I'm very satisfied with the amount of detail and intensity of colors I was able to put on it. Watercolor is so beautiful medium - with it you can achieve so tiny little details and so large, evenly colored areas. And the colors themselves are awesome. I am so glad I decided to do something in watercolor and I am so glad I decided on this subject. I think the color of the fur and the golden tack just work so well together!
I know Fabriano sketch isn't the first choice for many what comes to watercolor paper... But during the years it has become my favourite one. It is the only smooth-surfaced paper that can hand reasonably handle water (my technique is rather dry) - and I want that smooth surface to able to paint as much details as possible. I hate rough-surfaced watercolor papers... But I guess I will have to get used to them someday... Do not use any of my work without my written permission.
