Well, here's the first of the daily practices. Today's Tuesday, which means it's watercolor day. I should have picked something less complex to do, but I loved the original reference image too much to pass up. I spent longer on this than I should have and it really doesn't look like the original image, but all in all it's not bad. Still, I think I'll go with something a little more simpler for next week.
I do like the idea of doing more oddly colored horses. That could be fun. I used seven colors - peach, magenta, blue-gray, light blue, yellow, yellow-orange, and black - with a bit of white gel pen for some quick touch-ups.

Now to do my reading and relax. Yay!
