Seonaid Parnell Watercolours

Sea Horses

Step 1

A loose watery background of blues and greens was applied and allowed to dry fully. Then a light pencil sketch to give position and detail for the horses

Step 2  

Gradually start to add details mainly as negative painting, ie painting away from the shapes of the horses. Take your time and go gently, enjoying the process.

Step 3 - Finally, add details for the horses features and manes and make any adjustments required for the background colour.
