    sketches to paintings

    These are 5 minute sketches. Now, can I retain the liveliness of them once I paint them. That is the challenge! I can so easily just overwork them and then they have no energy left. I haven't painted at all in like 4 months!
    Finally feeling the urge to paint, so this is a good start. I do love to paint the foals . I just love their awkwardness.

    I absolutely love those sketches - I hope you keep your sketches after you've done a painting; framed and hanging on the wall they would stand on their own merits.

    Yes. They take 5 minutes each, sometimes less. It is all about the immediacy. The problem is when I go to paint them, I lose that feeling.
    So here they are.

    First, Stella's filly Storm:

    Then the others. These are taken from Lonestar's thread about their babies.

    Lastly, another view of Storm, and a shot from another foal thread, got them all off the Horse Pictures forum.

    Are these watercolor or ink wash?

    The are inkwash, except the colored one, which is outlined in ink, and colored with watercolor pencils.
