Horse Watercolor Finished!! It is called “Danny Boy!”

Here is my rendition of Danny. The reddish brown color was extremely challenging to mix, but I didn’t want it to turn out too dark. Also, I eliminated the trailer in the background to make it a nicer portrait.

Danny Boy Painting

Here’s the horse named Danny, who was my daughter’s favorite horse she learned to ride on a couple of summers ago. She also rode a horse name Bugsy sometimes. They look a lot alike, but we’re pretty sure this one is Danny. So, hence the name of the painting!

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork. Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. Thank you, Michelle. I have to say I am thankful it came out the way I wanted it to, and I am proud of my work. 🙂 And I hope you are proud of all of your photography as well! You have an eye for the interesting shots!!


  2. Wow! well done! you can be proud of your work Patsy 🙂


  3. Magnificent job, Patsy! You’re so talented. I’m curious what your daughter had to say about ole Danny Boy?


  4. Wow, that’s really beautiful! I love it. The redness of the coat is nice, and really goes well with the quite subtle background. Great balance. Bravo! 🙂


    • Thank you so much, Steven! I was torn about the background. I wanted to put some Lupine flowers in there, but they are purple, and I wasn’t sure that would have gone so well with the red?? But those reddish-brown colors were crazy to mix! This painting was a lot of fun to do, though. I am planning to call the lady who taught Grace how to ride on this horse and go over and show her the painting. I’d like to get some prints and cards made of it, too. 🙂
