Something else instead

I couldn't decide what to do so I did something else instead. My good friend's youngest daughter will be six at the beginning of February and she loves horses so this is the picture I have drawn for her card. I'm quite impressed with myself - I really like this picture. I love what you can do with watercolour pencils. I tend to draw first (with no water), which doesn't really look good on the watercolour paper, then I use a wet paintbrush to blend the colours as I want them. The effect is quite good I think.
Maybe start with the pyjamas tomorrow - when I've washed the other pyjama bottoms that I need to draw round ;-).
