This little gal’s named is ‘Purple cloud’ in Portuguese (per Babelfish) and was a custom order along with the Add-a-Foal Pouca Nuvem. As I remember the order was for specific molds in a purple overo pattern, with the details being artist’s choice.

I think they turned out rather well, although the overo markings aren’t as crisp as I like them now. I was using a different technique on these two, working with a very watered down white and gradually building up the pattern. It gave a much softer feel to the edges, but eh, it wasn’t one of my favorite outcomes.

Fun Fact: Her coat was created using only gesso and dioxazine purple, so her dark points aren’t actually black!
