Ready to Ride

8 3/4x 6 inches watercolor on Strathmore 140 lb paper; Daniel Smith paints, done today as my daily work.  Original photo featured on WetCanvas weekend drawing event by Lin.  You have to draw and paint your subject in under 2 hours.  This one was about an hour.Lin said the horse was in Laugharne, Carmathenshire, Wales where the RSPCA found him abandoned and starving.  A woman rescued him and they do dressage together.  For this work I've not painted her riding him and edited out buildings and clutter showing just him, such a handsome guy!
