Sandman’s Gold

This little gal has been waiting far too long in the 2005-era body box and I figure it was time to finally finish her up! (Plus I realized I hadn’t painted a non-Fantasy horse in quite some time and maybe I should break that habit.)

Mold: Scrambling Foal (G2)
Color: Buckskin Blanket Appaloosa

Medium: Acrylics and Pastels
Status: Painted 200? and Sold 200?

The one nice thing about the Add-a-Foals was I got very very good at turning out basic coat colors and patterns without sinking a lot of time into the model. When the horse is only costing someone $5, it’s a lot easier to let go of the perfectionism and play a little. (more…)
