This little guy was a more recent paint job and one I did just for fun. I’m really rather fond of the old standing foal mold, although Breyer has since come out with several new Stablemate litte’uns.
From what I remember, I painted this guy as a test piece for the technique used on later appaloosas. I think this works a bit better with the added pastel shading I did on the adults, but it looks nice as is on the smaller mold. Definitely a fun little pattern!
I do like the effect of the three colored dots, it really lends to the mixed edges of the blanket. It’s very much a fantasy pattern, playing more on the general look of an appy rather than following the actual coat patterns. Always nice to relax the rules and play a bit after a run of realistics.
