Subtle Magic (Breyer Stablemate)

Subtle Magic

Magic was the result of another round of ‘every color on every mold’ and is the dark bay entry in said contest. It might not be the most creative way to expand my galleries, but it was good for getting over ‘painter’s block’ and using up bodies.

This is one of my later horses, as you can tell by the headshot and the in-focus photos (and the lack of chrome that tended to accompany the later dark bays). I’m not sure why her nose is brown instead of black, but I have a few of the dark bays that are painted this way, so I must have had a photo reference that matched– I rarely changed from the ‘default’ painting patterns unless I did.

I think she turned out rather well, but out of the dark bay’s I still think Magpie Summer is my favorite…
