This Schleich Friesian mare was originally going to be a piebald with minimal black markings but that idea went out the window when I thought she would look pretty with some spots instead!
That is the great thing about painting models to sell, and not commissions - the versatility! I can do whatever I want with them, and even become inspired to try other colours.
I also finished this Schleich friesian foal who will be shown as a cob foal of some form now. He has lovely markings and his bright baby bay colour is sure to be an eye-catcher.
I also have three blue roan pintos to share! The first one is a commission that I completed. This is the Maggie Bennett TWH resin that is sold through Equinart Creations. It is a lot smaller than what I had anticipated, that is certain.
The other two are sales pieces, which are the rearing arabian Breyer stablemate,
and the Breyer ASB model, but this one is in fact an overo.
The last one to share is a Breyer traditional Gem Twist model. This model has in fact been sitting in my studio for MONTHS with the dapple grey basecoat finished. I lost inspiration for her and just left her there unfortunately. However today, I looked over her and had forgotten how much work I had put into her and realised she was in fact ready for details. So, I got on with it and finished her off!
I wasn't too keen on her but since adding the details, she has become a favourite.
