This guy was one of the earlier paint ponies I did  (in August), and I was very pleased with the way the color values described the form.  I did use some lifting to get some whites, but I also used some white gouache to add highlights.  I have decided that using the opaque paint with watercolor is very liberating, and allows me to paint more spontaneously.  What's good enough for Sargent is OK with me! 
I named this fella Kermit for obvious reasons, and though I like him, I know it's not easy being green!
