|On the easel - Misha, a Lipizzan Stallion, is the model for this one.|
This one I drew out in great detail because I felt inspired to use the acrylics again. I will next start adding watery thin layers of acrylic paint or stains to gently build colour, incorporating the graphite drawing.
Misha, the model, is the sire to 3 of our own horses. We have his 2 year old son, and future stallion, Prince Caspian. Lipizzans start out bay when they are born then change to gray, then to white around 8 years of age. Prince is a steel gray still. We are so happy with his progress, watching him as he grows into the magnificent white stallion.
I am busy preparing for the big Art Show and Sale this weekend with the St Thomas-Elgin Artist Guild so no new paintings til the show is done!
