I used Winsor Newton watercolor and matte medium to create this painting. I used a nozzle bottle to apply the matte medium, did an underpainting, negative painting and the horse splashed onto the scene.

This painting was started with an under painting, then I placed saran wrap on it to make abstract shapes and designs. After looking at the under painting for several days I started layering the paint around the shapes and a horse emerged.
This was a class demo using charcoal that I didn't post. Hard for some of my students to visualize in just one color while looking at a real life photo. Just a little exercise of seeing the value in one color. I have used this photograph for several demonstrations; I need to get out and take some new photos but it is too hot!! Soon my fall classes will resume and we will start with drawing and shading and move on to monochromatic watercolor paintings. I usually save the charcoal for the end but I think we will start with the charcoal instead of pencil, even though I will probably have to wash the walls when we are done.
