Even though I wiled away much of my morning (doing non-important things like playing the Horse Name Game and important things like practicing Spanish), I did manage to make some good progress on the herds, and even tackled two of the problem ponies from the last post.
Lilah, on the left, is progressing as a dark liver chestnut. The grain issues have mostly been fixed by layering and multiple coats of fixative. Fixing Alpo’s “rain rot” is a bit more intensive, but I did figure out some acrylic colors to paint match to his dirty white color. The major boo-boos are fixed and now he just needs some pastel over the top to smooth things over (at least, I hope that’s all he needs).
The chestnut pony on the far right is finished (pending a signature and gloss) and will be for sale after the live show in March. The little donkey is a commission and also just about finished. I hope to take some nice pictures of them tomorrow after a few more coats of fixative. It’ll be nice to check some off the in-progress list!
