Thank you!

Okay so this art piece is for my trainer/stable manager. She owns 3 horses so I decided to do one painting of all 3 of them. It's technically a Christmas gift but I didn't have time to finish it and get it to her before Christmas. This is also watercolor and pen.

Final sketch:


Zoey finished:


Sioux Finished


And Jaxie almost finished. I need to add some more details and work on her coat a little bit. And then just need to decide if I want to add a background...probably just a simple color wash if I do.

Gorgeous, I think she will love it!

Out of curiosity, do you use watercolours or watercolor pens?

Thank you!

And I use watercolors from a small tube, but I do add some pen work with Micron pens. I also use watercolor pencils, both as a wet and dry medium. This piece was done with just regular watercolor

Thank you Julie!

Okay so earlier I posted a thread about using Budgie feathers to make Jewelry or painting on the feather itself https://talkbudgies.com/general-budgi...thers.htmlwell well...it got me in a feathery mood so I fooled around with some watercolor today It's loosely based off of one of Hermes' feathers but I was kind of just having some fun with it and adding color here and there and just playing with it. I was also trying to schedule something with some people while I was doing it so I was multitasking haha. So obviously not my best work but it was fun I was originally planning on just having a white background with a small shadow under the bottom of the feather, but I then I looked at my colorful palette and did some stuff with the background haha. I got a little too carried away so now it's too busy and distracts from the feather, but, hey, I had fun

Sorry a lot of these pictures I sideways- I took them with my phone

Very basic sketch with my some-what reference feather donated lovingly by Hermes


And I was planning on doing a simple, light colored feather with some bright points...


Which quickly turned to this


And ended up like this


With a busy background like this It's a good thing I was just doing this for fun- only spent like 30 minutes (if that) on it. If I do one that I actually want to sell or turn into a card, I'd have to do a simple background or a simple feather haha


EDIT:
I played with it a bit more and I like this finished product much better! Simpler background brings more attention to the feather

Wow, I love your finished pieces ! They are all really wonderful Katie. Such a sweet pic of Tessa too, with the little bell hanging on her face.

School was cancelled today because of the weather, so...I did some art! And a lot of homework But I was able to start and finish this colored pencil. It's a portrait of a Tessa and I, though I didn't do much detail to my face so that my face isn't online. I did this because 1) I only have a couple of finished art pieces of Tessa. Don't get me wrong, I have TONS of sketches and doodles, but only a few where I did it in finished color and 2) I previously only made commissions available for animals and decided to cover a broader range so I made it for any subject. I wanted to add an art piece of a person to my portfolio since I have very few of them and potential customers would probably like to see how well I can draw a person

Oh, and also this is the last time I'm going to post the steps to the art piece. I'll still be posting all of the steps on my "blog"https://kribbens.wixsite.com/katzartkreations In the future I'll just post the finished piece on here.

Finished sketch and transferred onto colored pencil


First layer blended


Finished

As always, thank you!

So the art I'm posting today is a little different than usual. And here's why:

It'll probably be a couple of weeks before I can do art again. Tessa bucked me off a few days ago and I broke my left wrist. It's actually the first time I've ever fallen off a horse in the years I've been riding but I made up with it in injury. Not the first time Tessa's bucked by far but she turned into a bronco- continuous bucking and twisting...it was the twisting that did me in. Thankfully I'm right-handed so once my wrist heals a bit more I can get back into art. I just need my hand to hold and move the paper sometimes or some other things that come up. I've discovered that you use 2 hands more than you'd think! I really don't want to not do art for 6 weeks since I already had riding taken away. Also don't want to stop accepting commissions so I'll find a way to keep at it I think I may start trying some graphite work when I heal a bit more!

So, if you notice me not being as active around the forum, that's probably why. It takes a LONG time to type 1-handed!

I wanted to get a custom wooden phone case of Tessa and I. So I did this drawing in all black and white values (the black part is engraved). The real challenge was making some dark values white so that they could be seen. Like I did on Tessa's face. Also wanted the light values the wood of the case so I had to be creative to find ways to make sure they didn't disappear!


And this is the case. Came the day I broke my wrist and made me laugh at the truth of the saying Not the best pic but, you know, 1 hand.
