Watercolor pencil portraits.

I am going to start a different thread for the portraits I do with watercolor pencils. Besides, my equines in ink thread is getting really long, but I will continue to post portraits done in INK to that thread, and color watercolor on this one.

Here is one I did from a photo posted on the forum that I thought was really nice.

Anybody recognize this horse?

This photo is just one of my favorites! The color, lighting and the lovely mare. I could not get the very high contrast due to watercolor not being able to really get super dark. The photo of the artwork was taken in natural light but late in the day,so the light was minimal. It seems to have dropped out a lot of the blues. I think I will rephoto and post again tomorrow. I am happy with all except the muzzle, but there is nothing I can do. Cannot erase or go over it.
C'est la vie.

now that I look at it from this viewpoint, I can see that the jaw is too big and the face too short. ARGH!
