Dogs & Horses
Having seen the second part of Jean Haines' 'Amazing Ways with Watercolours', the Aquarellistas have been working in her style again last week. And not only that, we did it with her subjects. The first one was great for all: An old English sheep dog (or similar breed) - meant to express emotion.
The other one, 'horse racing', to express action, didn't appeal as much. But if you see the results you will probably agree (as did most afterwards) that it is in fact a great, inspiring, vibrant and active subject!
First some of the dogs, number one by Orjan, who stopped the exact right moment (and then happily created 3 versions of the horses) :

This Tuesday we'll watch the last part! And again paint 'for the bin (NOT) in this very loose, very watery and daring style, turning the paper around, keeping an eye on the 'diagonals' and corners...
