Weekly Update

Wow! We got blindsided up here in the Northwest with a winter storm, lots of ice on the roads. I thought my husband was going to be stuck on the highway overnight, but he made it home from work after 6 hours. I normally love the snow, but not when my family gets caught in it.

Anyway, on to the horses. I'm still working on the basic colors and shading of Mercurio. His dapples look like polka dots right now but that will change. I love the way Brigitte portrays movement, especially at the trot, both Lajjina and Mercurio have this beautiful presence and natural look.

I've been doing lots of little things to the reiner, started adding some mottling, worked a little on the hooves, and fiddled around some more with the spots. I've washed some more color over the blanket where I am working with the roaning, and added some color for ticking (or whatever it's called, I'm not good with nomenclature). I will go over all of that with blanket color.

I'm just putting in a basic airbrushed base coat here on Sushi. I love the way this resin looks in person but she's kind of hard to photograph because she's walking in such a straight-on pose. It makes her head look more angular than it is, I think. Some models are just really hard to photograph.

I've been able to work a little bit on Taboo. I'm really enjoying working on him and trying out some different techniques.

Whew! Well, that's all I've got to show for this week, I hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
