Affinity for Dapples

Acrylic and pigment basecoat.

Dapple grey was the color request for this "Affinity" resin and so dappled grey it was for this pretty Thoroughbred. I decided to document the painting progress on this particular piece cause I thought it might be interesting, most especially, for the owner to see her horse coming to life a little at a time.

Adding hair with a gesso/acrylic mix.

More hairing....

....and even more hairing.

....and yes, more hairing...which is
actually a lot of fun once you get a good
rhythm going.
