Every so often I paint a horse that I know I will never sell. (More often I sell horses I later regret, so it’s nice to have the flip side of the coin once in a while!)
The color came out just the way I had it in my head and for once the white markings followed suit. The resculpting of her face came out a tad too convex, but you’d be hard-pressed to find the line where the epoxy meets the plastic.
She’s a good example of my painting and sculpting skills at the end of my run as a business, and she has quite a presence even with her flaws. So she’ll never make it into a show string, but she has a permanent place on my ‘keeper’ shelf.
Plus she’ll be a perfect subject when it comes time to break out the camera again– and finally learn how to compensate for overexposure on the white markings. (darned chrome!)
