Watercolor

I had a very creative urge last night and really, REALLY wanted to do a watercolor! I frantically looked for my watercolors, but could only find a grey, white and green~ a weird combo, but this is what I came up with :



OR- it could be a mule too!



Critique's are welcomed!

Here is a photo of my first experimentation with watercolors;



And here was my first "real" watercolor;
Piaffe and KissTheRing like this.

So gorgeous! Makes sense if its a mule? Slightly large ears xD Maybe try a bit more definition / underlying shadows in the mane? :)

Great! Silly as this sounds, that is something I didn't even think of! The mane does look pretty flat.

Fun, loose, colorful work! If you ever feel inspired again, salt has this really neat look when mixed with watercolors. It does some starry dappling thing. I'd love to see you incorporate that in some artwork, somehow.

I'm too much of a watercolor chicken to try. LOL

I love the yellow fish! I just got into watercolor myself and am totally in love with tropical fish.

this is one I did. But yours is much more vibrant. I was too timid with my colors.
