Designing Dala Horses

There's a lot of carving and sanding involved in making a dala horse and not all of my designs and ideas work out so I've begun painting them on paper before I commit to making them into a real horse.

These are acrylic paint on heavy watercolor paper:

If I actually make the red one I think I'll make the saddle area inside the white brush strokes either blue or yellow.

I'm not liking the blue one enough to make so I think I'll just be using this to make into a paper card for one of the people that I write to.
