Danaway Tango

Danaway Tango
watercolours - ink - acrylic white
measures 24x32cm

Welsh Cob, sec. D - Stallion - UK
Danaway Tango is a world famous Welsh Cob stallion. He has won countless shows and prices. Born in 1995, he is after Tireinon Triple Crown, under Trevallion Marie.
A Truly stunning man he is, and he was alot of fun to paint.
This painting was given as a gift from the commissioner to the owners of Tango, at Danaway Stud. I am glad I didnt know this beforehand, as I am alittle starstruck that my humble work was given to this famous stud in the UK.

here is the photo I had to work with, for your comparison.
also, I dont have a proper scanner, so I have to photograph my paintings. Which makes the colours, and sometimes the angle all off... :(

Welsh Cob, sec D - 2yr old Colt - Norway
I needed to practise full sized portraits... I can't say I'm all that satisfied, but it IS better than my last one. Which means I am heading in the right direction at least. These take a while, and I cant add as much detail as I want to... which is killing me. Ha ha...
the photo, taken by me early summer/spring.

Kiwi the dog

This is a case of CRAP painting. I wanted to test out if I could do dog portraits, but I have to say no... I really can't. My first attempt, and I fear too it might be my last!
watercolours and ink.
