~My Artwork~

I thought I would share some of my newer stuff

Bit of background, I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil and I am now 13. I have been drawing reguraly for about 2 years now.

I havnt had any art lessons other than a few lessons at school here and there but this year I am doing a full year of art so I can't wait.

I am open to any critique! I don't have any "arty" friends or family so any advice I get on here really helps me!

Coloured Pencils
A couple of coloured pencil drawings, I have had little to no experience with coloured pencils so any advice would be awesome!

My sisters mare from a different angle ;)


A random Arabian... I realize that the nose is to small in this one

Watercolours
I got a set of watercolours for christmas! I have tried a few paintings and I have now discovered I love this medium!

First ever painting


My 2,3 and 4th painting ( all for people on the forum)

They look great! I cannot critique, I've always wanted to be better at drawing. (I don't know that its necessarily lack of talent, but lack of patience combined with perfectionism) but I wanted to ask, have you thought of purchasing some basic books to help you with perspective, angles, porportions?

I have a horse drawing book I love..
Drawing Horses | Overstock.com

And I'm sure there are plenty others! Love your work and good luck! =]

ETA- this particular book is great because it goes over drawing eyes, ears, hooves, legs, etc. individually and goes over a variety of breeds, musculature structure, the jumping horse, the galloping horse, etc.

They are sweet, Caitlin. I like the first painting of the arabian head. I must try some watercolours. I've got too comfortable with my pencils.

I would love to have a go at tess! Bit busy at the moment but I will have a go :)

You should really have a go with them Confuciuswasagreatteacr adding a bit of colour into drawings can make a huge difference! But it also is a lot harder as well.
