Mane Event

22x30 watercolor done today from a previous small horse with flowing mane.  This one is on Italia Acquerello 140 lb soft press paper and I worked wet on dry, but wet areas with large flat brush first before laying in paint.  I was trying to make this fellow a dappled grey, so just let colors run and spread of mixed palette neutral pigments.  Background was left white of the paper.
