American Saddlebred - a daily painting

10.5x9 watercolor on Saunders 140 lb cold press paper, American Journey paints. It was 10.5x15, about 1/4 sheet and I decided to crop off the right side as I'd blurred the rider and it didn't add anything to the composition...30 minutes to draw, 1.5 hours to paint. I used a black & white copy of the photo so color isn't too accurate but think it reads a sorrel anyway. Thanks Jean for the ref photo we used for the current Weekend Drawing Event in the All Media Art Event forum on WetCanvas!


  1. You did a good job on this horse Kay. I think you need to do lots more horses they always look great.

  2. I like it Kay. You did a fine job. With the mane up looks as though he is running. Pretty clear colors.

  3. Definitely reads "Sorrel". Very nicely done.
