Custom Breyer Emma

I haven't painted a model entirely in acrylics by paintbrushes alone in a long while, so this one is a great achievement to have done. She is also my first Breyer traditional custom of the year.


I painted in pinking of areas, and muddy feet and yellowing mane and tail which unfortunately you cannot easily tell... She even has ear pinking.


I also included mapping on her black markings. I love my piebalds when they are minimal on the coloured areas, I am not entirely sure why. I think she also makes a wonderful cob, as she is a bit on the short side as well for a model but suits the partbred perfectly.



I was actually surprised I finished her today, I wasn't expecting it but she came along so smoothly. I am just grateful that, despite what has happened over the past couple of months, I have got my motivation back and I am able to finish more models.



I have plenty more models coming soon to show you including other plans which I am very excited about. Stay tuned, I am hoping it is going to be a great year!
