Speckled White Horse Watercolor

I don’t know if there are many things better than speckles. Speckles, freckles, dapples; they’re all magnificent.

I worked today with a limited palette (three colors—Rose Madder, Raw Sienna, Raw Umber—plus black and white) and ended up with a lovely speckled horse. Slightly overworked, maybe, but still entirely smooch-able. 🙂

      Thank you! Have you loved and/or cared for horses at some point in your life? I never have been around them, but I loved horse stories for a long time when I was a girl. (Misty of Chincoteague!!)
