I did it on a 14"x9" watercolor paper. I tried a lot to create those horses so they look like real with 3D affects! can you tell me how would I do this better next time? Thank you very much!

Even though I agree with the others I can see the love and hard work you put into this painting . Google has very good skeletal , muscle and ligament photos of any animals you want to paint.Doing them really gives you a good sense of proportions.

Keep on ..most of the learning is in the doing . Looking forward to your next painting .

Your perspective between the body vs. the head and legs needs some adjustment. I think if you would make the legs longer without losing muscularity it would help a lot. The impression right now is a cow's body with a horse's head. Good luck!

Horses
by: Dorothy , Carluke

Hi,

I like the idea of the horses grazing in the field but I think you need to do a little work on the horses by studying their body shape etc.,

If I were to advise you on how your might improve on your painting next time. I would say leave out the gray, work on the bay and also make a break in the wall to lead your viewer in to the painting.

Have a go at sketching it out in pencil and try moving the bay a touch to the left about a third of the way in. Drawing small sketches will give you a good idea if you have got the composition right before you put brush to paper.

Regards,

Dorothy

Hi oeendree, unforunately the whole painting is rather flat. I would advise going back to basic sketching and drawing and learn to shape things with shadows and tone. You have the potential there, you just need to practice!
