I am really pleased with my NaMoPaiMo horse.
She turned out almost exactly how I'd envisioned...
and I am convinced that she is the best example of my finishwork so far.
My only real disappointment is that I achieved these results with pastels instead of oils.
I really, really, really want to paint a horse in oils.
So I decided to try again. My BHR draft customized to a Fjord was primed and ready to go so he became next victim. Here's the acrylic basecoat...and one,
three coats of oils!
I like the body color, but the legs are giving me fits. Fortunately, there's no deadline for this one. I can keep picking at him as long as I want. It may take me months, but I'm determined to just keep painting. I know if I try hard enough, I will eventually reach my goal!
