A Horse Named Joe

9.5x7.5 watercolor of a pinto or piebald horse I named Joe growing up.  Spotted or patterned animals to me are quite unique as each one is different.  Background, fence and foreground are all imaginary and painted wet on dry on Italia 140 lb cold press paper; Daniel Smith paints:  Quinacridone burnt orange, quin gold, raw sienna, arylide yellow, Prussian blue, raw umber.  American Journey:  Midnight blue, Peachy Keen, Apricot, permanent rose, and periwinkle.
