Good idea?

I've been thinking of doing a little something for my BO for Christmas. I'm not quite sure of what medium to attempt for it though...possibly some more watercolor, maybe...whatever I have on hand cause I don't want to really go out and buy stuff.

Basically, my idea is a somewhat large (landscape-page) image consisting of three busts of some of her horses. The horses would be her three generations of Andalusian stallions - Payaso "Gillie", his son Poderoso "Pan", and Pan's son Flamenco. I think it would be interesting trying to capture the slight differences in their facial structures and such (especially since Gillie and Pan are all 'white' and Flamenco is just greying out).

I have at my disposal:
- watercolor paints
- pastel sticks (multi-purpose, can be used dry or wet)
- pencils (unfortunately only graphite)
- pen

My issue with watercolor would be that I'm a dunce and don't ever have proper paper for it so it always warps somewhat (you know how paper gets when wet). Though after drying for a while, my previous piece turned out less warped than when it was wet. If I get better suited paper/canvas for it, then I could definitely do that...I may also get it framed if it turns out nicely and isn't too expensive.

Opinions (on the idea, what medium to use, etc)?
