Thanks everyone!

Wow, what a crazy week! I hope you all are ready for a photo spam because I've finished 2 pieces! I finished the dressage watercolor for the festival and I'm going to start a graphite to enter as well. They moved the deadline, so now I have enough time to try to crank it out. You'll hopefully be seeing the beginnings of it in the next few days. The other piece I finished was the 3rd piece in my acrylic tack series.

First, here's the grand reveal of the dressage watercolor:

Finishing the horse...


The beginnings of the water...


And done!!


Art always gets a little messy haha.


Okay, now for the acrylic. I don't have too many progress shots of this one, but it's a bay overo jumping(sticking with the paint horse theme, I'll explain more below). I also gave him a bald face.

Just with the tack done


Adding some muscle and values


And done!


Here's all 3 of the series together. The first piece is a closeup of a bit with a sabino, the second piece (far right) is my tobiano mare, and then, of course, the overo is in the middle. Those are 3 different coat patterns found in the American Paint Horse breed!

Thank you

Okay, so it's been kind of crazy around here! I've been interviewing for jobs, visiting colleges, working on a children's book along with a nonprofit organization, and finishing lots of art!! I was just hired for another commission so I'll be starting on that soon.

First off, I entered my school's annual art contest (I've entered it since they started doing it 9 years ago lol). My zebra acrylic, which some of you may remember but I'm posting it below just in case, took 1st!! And then my photograph of the train depot took 2nd...the problem was when we ordered a hard copy, the colors printed were all off. The sky was overexposed, the contrast lifted, and the colors duller. I feel like it would've done better had it been represented more accurately but I'm still very pleased with how I did! I posted the digital photo of it below. I also entered a picture of a swan from Switzerland. I've had to photoshop pictures before and I did so with this one so thought it would be cool to share. I didn't have to do too much thankfully but I posted a before and after. I mostly had to repaint the sky, edit out people, umbrellas, railing, a feather, some ducks....but the rest was fine. I once had to edit a branch out of a leopard's face...yeah that took forever.

"Sepia Sahara" 1st


"Been Working on the Railroad" 2nd


"Swiss Swan"


Okay, on to the next project! I started-and finished- the graphite! I sent in my submissions to the Dressage Festival yesterday so I'll let you know how it goes.

First the eye sketch...


Then the horse. I put it next to a penny to show the size difference...I think this is the cutest horse I've ever drawn

And the sketch onto final paper

It's very peaceful drawing by the fire


And a certain someone made it very hard to stay on task lol. *cough* Bella

Timelapse of work on the eye


Almost done...


And finished!!

Congratulations on your wins, Katie!
Very well done

I love the picture you are entering in the Dressage Festival and I'll be anxious to hear how it is received.

Best wishes!

Thanks so so much, everyone!!

I also submitted this piece into an art contest across the country. I won't know how I did on this contest or the Dressage Festival for another couple of months. Just another waiting game now... Ah well, what can you do?


Okay, here's some photos of my work on my latest commission! It'll be a set of 2, each a male quail. Just started on the first piece today and I'm very pleased with how it's coming!! The texture is SO fun to do


And I thought I had made it really far until I took a step back and realized...I had a long way to go lol
