The jumper

Here is my first horse painting. Since this was first I did it in a very small size. With more confidence I'll go for bigger size. 
Hope you enjoy it.

Title - The Jumper
Size - 6 x 10 inch
Medium - Watercolor on paper

What a coincidence, Prabal! I am drawing my first horse at the moment!

Mine is pulling a cart!! Yours looks far more active.

I'm impressed!

Wonderful action, Prabal. Very, very nice.

Fan-freakin-tastic Prabal! More ponies please!! :) Really love the movement and colors in this piece. And you did a great job with the legs which are dead difficult in my opinion. :D

Just want more ! A good balance between precision and looseness which product the movement.

You don't want to see my horse painting!! they look human! This is truly beautiful, Prabal!!! Excellent!!!!

Sandra said...

Oh wow, this is amazing!! It looks so full of life and movement! And I love how the light catches the folds on his clothes. Your first horse is a clear winner :0)

John,
When my horse becomes a little older he too will be pulling a cart. LOL. I am waiting to see your horse now. :)

Kathryn,
That is realy great encouragement as it comes from the owner of Bruno.

Prabal said...

Ramesh, Carol,
Thank you guys.

Crystal,
I really wanted to know what your comment would be since you paint horses like magic. I am thrilled that you liked it. :)

Lydie,
Since it was a new subject I was aware that I would become too tight. So every now and then I reminded myself to be loose by spattering some paint around. I am glad it seemed to have worked to get the movement here.

Oh Hilda,
I am sure your horses will be at least twice better than this. Thank you for your kind comment.

Sandra,
I guess the name of the horse was 'Winner'. LOL. I am really happy you liked it. :)
