Fantasy Polo: Bunny vs. Teddy

So this weekend I ended up in Berlin, Germany to watch some polo matches.  On Saturday, I did a few pencil sketches as seen in the last blog.  The following day, I decided to paint one of them in with watercolour.  It was great practice!

IMG_2246Initially the colours came out rather too bright and colourful which would have looked great for each horse, but together, made the painting look confusing.  So I toned them down a bit with a shade darker for the corresponding tones.  Am starting to get the knack of understanding highlights and shadows a bit better.  I like how watercolour adds a sense of continuity and flow.  Also looks soothing.

So hopefully soon I’ll be able to paint in the other drawing I did.  But I also like it the way it is!  Hmmm… kinda thinking…
