Pony Commission- watercolour painting art

Pony watercolour painting

I was recently commissioned to paint 2 ponies for a gift.

The 2 pictures which I was sent did not have the ponies together clearly so I was asked to merge the two to make the composition nicer. I was also asked to paint the large cob without his rug.

I loosely sketched out the ponies together and drew in the markings from under the rug using another picture for reference. I then using a lightbox painted over the pencil sketch onto the thick watercolour card.

I slowly built up the colour of the ponies using the photographs as reference to get the lovely watercolour result.
