On My Workbench

 
Here's a shot of many of the works I've got in progress. Not everything would fit in my spraybooth (like the Huck Bey) and I've got a few others that I've just started, too. Most of these are between halfway done to almost done. I've been working mostly on the mini-Maj, the Classic Shire, and the Rosita.
I'm going to do a little more on the mini-Maj this week, then I have to let him sit to dry for a while. I'm detailing the hooves and braids on the Shire, then I'm going to go over the dapples again with oils (I think) before doing final detailing. I got impatient with the Huck Bey and ended up lifting the paint a little bit, right on his belly, so I'm definitely letting him dry off for a few days before attempting anything more with him.
I am feeling so out of it and like a hermit lately! I haven't been on Blab for so long, I don't even know what's going on. I like to take my time and go through each forum category to see what I've missed, but it takes so long for me to do that, and, well, time is in really short supply for me with all of the painting I've been doing. I do miss it, though...

You have some truly lovely horses you are working on! I can't wait to see which of them end up as sales items... :-D

That's a lot of in-progress ponies! The shire is looking fabulous. He looks huge compared to the little guys, and he's not that big! Really cool perspective though.

Are these hand crafted from scratch? If so you have an enormous gift!!!

Thanks so much! Alvin, some people do sculpt and paint their own horses, but these are all purchased sculptures, I am simply painting them. Thanks so much for checking out my "other" blog, I appreciate it!
