horse fingerpainting

I got the idea from my art book. It's huge, so thick and it has four places that you can get to. So I chose in that huge thick book this project that I loved. I used my thumb and even fingers. Don't forget: I also did the pinky! The pinky was to make the hair, mane and tail--to make those parts that have hair in them.
I love this picturrrrrre.
I looked at 2 postcards from Chincoteague Island while I painted. I got that inspiration from the Chincoteague pony cards. (my posted a picture of me on the beach at Chincoteague Island-Island-I-I-I-I-Island here).
Here my fingers got really, really, really messy. Not that messy, actually, just medium, 'cause I'm a neat girl, and also I like to do detail in some pictures.
The red spots are ladybugs.
