Blue Horse Watercolor Painting

For the past week I’ve been trying to get better about finishing sewing projects and drawings that sat for weeks, months, even years so I can finally put them away or sell them. Back in September (Or August?) I thought it would be a great idea to make some watercolor paintings to sell in my Etsy store, but they sat under a pile of stuff for months. While cleaning, I found my book of watercolor paintings, some half done, and figured I should finish the paintings right then and there. (The fact that I was tired of cleaning helped in this decision.)

One of the finished paintings that I never scanned was one I call Blue Horse.

Basically, it’s part of a series of horse paintings with unusually colored hair. I plan on painting 12 in total and compiling them into a calender for sale on Redbubble, but so far I have three, this one included.

This painting has the honor of being the first scanned painting that was so large I had to overlay in Photoshop. I never overlaid anything in Photoshop before, but after looking up some tutorials I was able to do it. Also, I repainted the horse’s hair in places because it wasn’t as bright as I wanted it to be. I think I’m getting better when it comes to using Photoshop’s brushes and my new tablet. They’re so sensitive and a hard touch can put down more color than I want.

The painting is for sale on Redbubble and Socitey6 and can be seen on DeviantART here.
