Sketches of Four Horses: Please Vote for which to paint! Plus Fairy Maiden with Waterlily

Edit:  Another really close vote!  Combined between facebook and my blog, number 3 won by one, so that is the one I will strive to finish by Tuesday next.  It is the year of the horse though and I do love horses, so it's entirely possible that 2 will make an appearance at a future time...


Here are the two sketches combined of the flower fairy maiden and her waterlily.  Alex and I decided it would be too busy with the koi fish, so I will hope to incorporate some of them into another painting in addition to the little one I am working on...


These are four horses that I've sketched this week.  I would like to paint one of them this week.  If you'd like to vote on which one, just leave a comment as to which you'd prefer and I'll tally the votes on Tuesday at around four, adding up the votes of my blog and facebook page together.  In the event of a tie, or no votes, I'll just draw one out of a hat.  I might do this weekly with different sketches.  I also may use the sketches and paintings based on the sketches posted in other art at different times.  This painting will be a small 5"x7", with some cropping to fit the format, that I will try to complete between Tuesday and the Tuesday next...

This is such a terrific idea, getting the audience involved! I love both 2 and 3, but I think 2 might be the most fun if his nose is in a patch of flowers. The flower fairy looks great!

Hi Lisa, I vote for painting No. 3 and look forward to seeing which ever one you complete :-)

number 2!

Alexandra said...

I really like them all but if I had to pick, I'd choose #2. :) Fun sketches.

Ginny said...

I loved both two and three and had a hard time choosing between the two. But there is free spirit that speaks to me in #3 so that is my choice.
