Unicorn painting

Hi there crafty friends, today I'd like to share a painting I've just finished. I know its not a masterpiece, I'm just learning, but my Aunt asked me to paint a unicorn for her grandaughters bedroom and this is the first one.  I just love unicorns, so I'm going to paint a few and let her choose the one she likes the best. Her room is mainly blues and greys and she said she would like muted tones, so I think this should fit in.
I used paints from Indigblu, matte and metallic, with the addition of Slap it on to help blend the colours, on a 50cm x 40cm canvas.

Here's step by step pictures from start to finish

Thanks for looking, please feel free to comment any constructive criticism. I am self taught so always thankful for any painting tips and techniques.

We love 2 create - #7 anything goes

Simply create too - #138 anything but a card

As you like it challenge - Favourite animal and why 
( I love horses, fantasy and anything magical, so it has to be a unicorn.)

  4. Wow! For someone being self taught, you captured the magic of the unicorn. It looks 3D with all the layering especially of the mane. I love the soft colours used and can almost feel the softness of the unicorn's neck. I see no reason why this is not allowed. Stunning work!

  5. This is stunning!!
