Another update on the horse watercolor.
I'm working to portray, I think, a wild-windy mane on this horse. I can see I'll be changing a lot of things about the mane, I'll just keep working on it until it becomes what I want it to be.
I used one of my photos of a horse named Murphy to begin this painting. He was my cousins' horse, he's no longer with us. I rode him up behind Split Mountain, west of Dupuyer, Mt, one time on a cold, windy day.
Murphy had large ears, and a very expressive face. I've used his image in several paintings just because he had such "presence" in the photos I took of him.
Hope you enjoy the updates, leave a comment if you wish!
