Cowart's Common Room

For those purple cooers who kindly gave me advice about Welsh Ponies the other day I have now completed Grace's Jewellery Box and attach a couple of photos.

I haven't ever painted a horse before-all that muscle tone is quite tricky to capture but I don't think this should be mistaken for a donkey!
I would like to be sure that it does indeed look like a 'pretty' light grey welsh pony.

I have actually really enjoyed doing it (even though I could have sewn 30+PE Kit bags in the time it has taken me to do.) But they are extremely pretty and graceful little horses and the 8 year old who this is for is a really pretty and sweet little girl. So I think she will like it.

I would appreciate any comments and tweaks you think I should make-Especially UPL-Please would you kindly cast your perfectionist artists eye over these my dear??

Many thanks in advance

Exmoorjane's Avatar Looks good to me, CCA....aren't they lovely little ponies?

They are gorgeous. Makes me wish I could ride, although I presume Pony means they are for little ones whereas I would need to be on a horse anyway! And my boys have no interest at all. Can't even get Idle Jack to ride his bike!

Thanks Jane

Preseli Mags's Avatar It is absolutely lovely. It does look exactly like a Welsh pony should. Right down to the litte rounded tummy and the pretty face. Perfect! Is this a one off or would you do more if asked (very nicely)?

Elizabethm's Avatar That is spot on - I just looked out of my window at my neighbour's pony and they could be sisters!
glad you are feeling better.

Thank you for your kind words everyone-I did promise to show you what I had done. I worried it looked a little 'wooden' but then I figured a little girl would like it if it looks like her pony.

Thanks UPL for your comment. But from the New Year I intend only painting for my own pleasure-I'm afraid I will be stopping the painted items from my range as they are too intricate for my poor bones and I can't do them fast enough to make any money!

LittleBrownDog's Avatar Gorgeous! Not wooden at all - I'm sure the little girl in question will be absolutely thrilled.

Suffolkmum's Avatar Well done Angel, I think it looks stunning and will melt a little girl's heart. You are very clever.

Snailbeachshepherdess's Avatar I can remember trying to draw a horse...they are just about the most difficult thing to do ...but you have made a lovely job of it and the little girl will be well pleased for glorious technicolour?????Laughing

Frances's Avatar Very well done, Ms Angel!
I have never really seen one of the ponies, but your image will be my mental image of the ponies from now on.
