Topaz by Kuoma Topaz by Kuoma
Hey did I say I want to paint a horse? Well, I did!!:D Topaz is its name..
This is my third try and I like how it turned out (even I think the pose of the animal is a bit static, all because I am not sure about horse anatomy in general .did not have enough courage to try more dynamic one)
The painting is based on a picture I took in summer as we visited a horse farm. Bella always liked this picture and wanted me to draw a horse for her. Sure I had to give it a fantasy features with my love to fantasy :XD:
Surpisingly beautiful scan but you can not see that it's mane is golden I used gold pigments by Schmincke for the first time and I like how it looks on illustrations=)
Watercolor on Fabriano hot pressed paper, A4
Hope you like it!:heart:

Edit: gone over with purple to define shadows of the horse's body, added more foliage ( both dark and light) and more purple to the misty bg=) Thanks to :iconjmunsonii: for ideas and to other fellow artist-friend who said 'again you are afraid of darks' and this way helped to solve some problems :XD:
