This little gal is one of my favorites (in name and in color) and one of the horses I really wish I hadn’t sold. In theory I could paint her again, but I’m oddly reluctant to try.
Sudden Digression is a customized Breyer Stablemate G2 Thoroughbred. She’s had her logo removed and seams sanded, but no other changes were made to the mold.
It’s hard to see from these photos, but she’s solid white along her topline and then white dapples down, gradually fading out to yellow. Not an accurate translation of the graying patterns on real horses, but more of an artistic interpretation thereof.
I’m hoping I’ll find the original photos as I clean out my old computer—if I can play around with the color balance and the histogram settings I might be able to make her a little more in focus. (Or at least find the scans I know I did of her!)
This gal was definitely not painted in 2005, I’m pretty sure she was part of a batch of older customs that I resold for a customer who was getting out of the hobby. Once I track down her real age I’ll come back and sort things out.
