Painting Cowboys Intermediate Level
Wet on Wet for White Horse and White Snow
How do you paint a white horse in snow?
In this lesson you'll learn how to add color wet on wet to get the most sparkle out of your western snow scenes. Included are reference photos for this scene and two extra photos with the same models for even more practice.
If you like cowboys, you'll get grand experience working wet on wet for loose background and white horses.
Painting the actual cowboy and girl are just the frosting on the cake.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher
My story is simple.
I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.
Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).
My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.
Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!
