Earth: Custom Order (Custom Breyer Mini Whinnie High Stepping Saddlebred Mare)

Earth - Custom Breyer Mini Whinnie High Stepping Saddlebred Mare - Martha Bechtel - Right

Earth is a Breyer Mini Whinnies High Stepping Saddlebred Mare painted to the same blue-bay tobiano as Partly Cloudy. She has show-blacked hooves, a thin blaze, solid black eyes, and a glossy finish.

She’s only the second time I’ve painted a Breyer Mini Whinnies High Stepping Saddlebred Mare. It’s a mold I really like but just haven’t had a chance to put it under a paintbrush much. It also means Earth’s only an inch tall and the photos below are several times life-sized!

The problem I run into whenever I paint these little guys is that the camera captures defects I can’t always fix– someday I’ll manage to pull off customs just the way they look in my head, but alas for now I’m still learning! 😁

Earth was a custom order and was started and finished in March 2014.

Medium: Liquitex White Gesso, Liquitex Artist Color Acrylics (Mars Black, Light Blue Violet, Ultramarine Blue), FolkArt (720 Cobalt Blue)
