Calvin and the horses

Long ago I used to take Calvin for walks early on Saturday morning to give Aura a chance to sleep in. These were the horses belonging to friends up the road from us. It was a misty rainy day. Calvin went up to the horse who came to meet him. Calvin was quite fearless and patted the horse on its nose
I was able to take a few photos from which I painted this
Watercolour .

Here is the first:

This is watercolour on 300gm Arches cold pressed – 190x280mm

There was something wrong with the hindquarters of the horse so I did another one.  Which I think was better:
