I wish you would come give me lessons on how to do watercolor. I am really struggling with it. I don't know the technique, so I end up making a mess. Have made two that I ended up just throwing away after two hours, each. How you can paint that quickly floors me. When do you find time to ride? Or work or whatever? (do you detect a tone of envy here?)

I'm with ya on that one. Watercolor and I have not had a great history. One painting that I did in high school. After that-nothin. I'm in awe of how detailed you ended that painting with. I would never guess that it was watercolor.
Green with jealousy!

I guess to me it just doesn't seem all that different from acrylic, only you need to add water to it to help it spread better. At first I thought it would be similar to ink and you just mix the colors with different amounts of water but I found it works much much better if you just dip your brush in the water and mix a little at a time as you go along...

I did up an outline for brackenbramley tonight
Please ignore the rider's face in the sketch, as my pen has taken up the nasty habit of blobbing

Incredible work as always! I really like the way the corners are darkened so the attention is all on the horse and rider. I'd love to know how you do grass, is there a specific brush you use to paint more than one blade at a time?

It depends on the grass and how close up it is. I have the fan brushes that I use sometimes when the grass needs to be tall, but usually I use the square brushes, dab them into the paint (sometimes I wet it down a bit if it's too globby) and tap it a couple times on the pallet to scrunch the tip just a bit to seperate the hairs.
That usually works
