The Horse Knows the Way Watercolor Painting

 The Horse Knows the Way watercolor painting is 8 x 10 and inspired by a photo reference from last weekend's WDE at Wet Canvas.   

"...The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
through the white and drifted snow.
Over the river, and through the wood—
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose
As over the ground we go."
...excerpt from poem by Lydia Marie Child

Poinsetta Watercolor Painting

Poinsetta watercolor painting is 8 x 10 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.   I did this using a pour technique.    First you pour paint onto the paper and let it go where it wants and wait for it to dry.  I used the red and green paints to pour.  Because the paints are diluted with water, the colors are not deep.    Once dry,  I did the drawing on top of this and painted.  The light green is compose green and the pink is quin red and Opus vivid red.

you are the window through which you must see the world."
