Finnegan’s a Breyer Stablemate Shire (G2) painted to a bright green bay sabino and sold sometime in the early 2000’s. He’s an interesting fella because there isn’t any black in this guy (other than his eyes), the dark points are actually phthalocyanine green.
This little guy is a good example of when color blending goes a bit off. As you can see the dark green and the light green don’t have a smooth transition, which leaves the darker areas of the coat with a very painted feel to them.
Compared to a paint job like Whiskey in the Jar, where the blue and green meet seamlessly, it’s a bit frustrating. The phthalocyanine green is hard to blend well, and I might have done better to blend the bright green into a dark green and then into the phthalocyanine. *pokes model*
Other than the blending issues, I’m quite fond of this little guy. He was one of my later models, as you can tell by the photos and the pointillism approach to the sabino markings, and I do love the color combination if not the execution.
