A Horse portrait in watercolours I did recently while teaching an adult evening class.Attaached also some shots taken by a student and show the progress of the watercolour from the rough drawing to the finished image
After weeks of snowfalls, stormy winds and darkness the sun is back! It was a sunny but a very cold day today, with temperatures below and around zero..
At least there was no wind at all, such a peaceful feeling! I couldn´t miss the chanec to go back to the Park to look after the Owls. I saw at least four and managed to sketch two of them. On my way back to the car I spotted in the small half-frozen lake in the front of the Palace among many Tufted & Pochard ducks, a Ferruginus duck, a real rarity for Germany...
It was two years ago when I did a study of this Saker falcon on toned paper.
I always had in mind to do a coloured version of this but didn`t find
the time until now..Here is the initial drawing , and the latest watercolour.
