M.O.M. Live Show Donation

Bay Show Donation – Thumbnail

This little gal is Breyer Stablemate G3 Belgian and a show donation to M.O.M. Live held on May 17th, in Black River Falls, WI. She’s also the first finished customer of 2014! (We’ll ignore the fact that she’s also the only horse I finished 1st Quarter. *sighs*)

She’s unnamed, at least until I hear otherwise, but her workbench name has been Dammitall Dapples– because I’ve never tried painting a true dapple bay before and she was quite an adventure. Dammitall was a fun combination of the first finished custom on this mold and the first time I’ve tried painting this color. Dappled bay turns out to be not quite as impossible as dappled gray, but it’s a pretty thin line.

I started out planning to do her mostly in acrylics, but the dappling issues caused me to break out the Prismacolor pencils as well as the pastels. Thankfully the combination of the three mediums worked out well, but she’s actually a lot less red than she looks in the photos (hence the overabundance of them). Continue reading

Schneekatze is German for “Snow Cat”, since this little gal looks like she’s wandered into a snowdrift mid-hunt. I had a lot of fun painting Schatten-Grün and Tao Vert, so I figured it was time for another stab at the color. Continue reading

Medium: Liquitex Artist’s Color Acrylics (Ivory Black, Gesso, Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, Yellow Oxide, Light Portrait Pink), Sargent Art Chalk Pastels (Earthtone)
Status: Painted April 2012 and SOLD!

Newton’s Laws of Motion dictate that a body at rest tends to stay at rest—and he wasn’t kidding! This little gal sat half-finished on my workbench for almost two months before she finally got going again. Not as impressive as the seven year hibernation of most of my body box, but certainly longer than anticipated! Continue reading

Mold: Highland Pony (G3)
Color: Gold and Copper Tobiano
Gallery: Tobiano
Medium: Gesso, Liquitex Acrylics (Mars Black, Burnt Sienna, Bright Gold, Metallic Bright Bronze)
Status: Painted 2012 and For Sale

I totally meant to paint this pony a serious color, something realistic and dashing like a nice flaxen chestnut with a tiny touch of chrome… and then I got sidetracked by pictures of Bling and the urge to dunk her in metallics was too powerful to resist.

My fantasy Muses come heavily armed. *solemn nod* Continue reading

Nocte Rex is Latin for King of the Night and this little guy is definitely rocking the midnight hours! He’s got a deep blue-bay coat, glossed silver hooves and a silver star to light the way ahead.
