Topaz by JannaFairyArt Topaz by JannaFairyArt
Hey did I say I want to paint a horse? Well, I did!!:D Topaz is its name..
This is my third try and I like how it turned out (even I think the pose of the animal is a bit static, all because I am not sure about horse anatomy in general .did not have enough courage to try more dynamic one)
The painting is based on a picture I took in summer as we visited a horse farm. Bella always liked this picture and wanted me to draw a horse for her. Sure I had to give it a fantasy features with my love to fantasy :XD:
Surpisingly beautiful scan but you can not see that it's mane is golden I used gold pigments by Schmincke for the first time and I like how it looks on illustrations=)
Watercolor on Fabriano hot pressed paper, A4
Hope you like it!:heart:

Edit: gone over with purple to define shadows of the horse's body, added more foliage ( both dark and light) and more purple to the misty bg=) Thanks to :iconjmunsonii: for ideas and to other fellow artist-friend who said 'again you are afraid of darks' and this way helped to solve some problems :XD:

gorgeous work, due to my 3yr olds love for unicorns since she is a princess I have been looking alot at unicorn work getting ready to paint her one and this is by far the most pretty, I love the green vines in the hair

The forest looks fantastic here, but my comment would be on horse's scale. It should be smaller comparing to the trees' height. Otherwise, it can be a gigantic unicorn. :) Horse anatomy is something you can practice on further. Don't worry about it! :D

For a third try this is so impressive!!! :wow:
The horse itself is well-done, particularly the forelimbs and the head. You just need some improvements about the rearlimbs.
And of course I love the background!!
