A horse of course

I bought some new markers and had to try them out.  They are quite nice, but I found the pastel colours were too bright.  In this drawing, I randomly chose colours.  Looking at it now, I can see the butterfly and the flowers are all too different.  A common might have helped unify them.  I also wasn't sure where to end the horse's neck among the vines.  After I took this picture, I coloured the background green, which certainly makes the horse pop, but because I couldn't blend, I'm not sure I like it.  I'll stick with watercolours for that type of thing.
