One Hundred Horses: Number Nineteen

Pippi is a playful mare in dapple seal brown inspired by Vesuvio Bien Vee photographed by Soltera. Both are a color I hadn’t tried to paint before, and I am happy with the soft feel.
Her braid is caught up in the game.






One Hundred Horses: Number Eighteen

The weather hasn’t been very cooperative for both spraying models and photographing them! I finished a simple repaint this week. He’s a grulla brindle mustang stallion with a little sock and a star, stripe and snip. His base holds him into a leaping pose.

He was inspired by Drink One For Me, an AQHA stallion. (https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Community/2015-AQHA-IBHA-Drink-One-For-Me-Grulla-Brindle-Stallion-1882271148752678/)






NaMoPaiMo Registration is Open

Registration for National Model Painting Month is open! Please visit namopaimo.com to sign up.

Registration will remain open through midnight January 31. Once you register, you can't change your model... so start planning now so you have plenty of prepping--and decision-making--time.

The Facebook group is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/234123470349077/

I'm going to paint a model I've been working on this winter. He's an American Cream Draft stallion made from a Breyer Stablemate Vaulting horse and a heand and neck combo resin sculpted by Maggie Bennett. Right now he needs another round of prep work--you know how that first coat of primer shows the little things that you missed? Now that he's one color I can see where I need to focus to blend the two parts together.

For those of you on Pinterest, I'm working from photos of a sweet-looking stallion named Joker's Golden Boy. https://www.pinterest.com/sarahtregay/american-cream-draft-horses/
