Heza Jim Dandy - Right

I suppose every model paint job is another step on the learning curve, but this little guy was somewhere at the bottom. The blending between the black and the yellow has that tinge of green that I’ve learned to avoid and the grey around the eyes is not at all subtle. The coat color seems a tad too yellow, but that might also be the camera.

There are some old customs that I just wince to look over… and this little guy is one of them.

From what I remember, this little guy was an Add-a-Foal– which would make sense considering I was avoiding palominos like the plague. After painting Butterscotch Sundae, I’d stayed as far away from the color as I could. Bays and chestnuts are infinitely easier colors to paint than the dilutes and I just wasn’t confident in my abilities at that point.

If only I’d had pastels! (sighs)
