This was painted on smooth watercolour paper, using White Knights watercolour paints - these are very intensely pigmented watercolours. I found them a bit intimidating initially, but once I had got used to not picking up lots of paint on my brush to begin with, I really like them. I have used a very limited palette - Payne's grey, cerulean, and a terracotta. I used a touch of black here and there, to darken the eyes or add a bit of depth to a forelock.
This painting is now for sale in my Etsy shop.
