PAINTING FOR SALUTE (18 days to go)
Horse 1, with gnashing teeth, crazed eyes, frothing mouth and lathered flanks, is pretty much complete. It's a "Bay" and as I guide I used Sheryl Leisure's brilliantly painted horses from Horse-Power Graphics Inc.
Horse 2 is an Appaloosa. The Spanish introduced this horse to Mexico in the 1500s and despite becoming synonymous with Red Indians, let's just say that my Uhlan acquired the horse from a British cavalryman on his return from fighting in the America's.
Horses 3 & 4 are also Bays but dappled simply as I enjoy doing it...you might have noticed. I aim to have all four finished tonight then it's on to the next four - maybe some blacks & dapple greys. Here are my some more images (click on the image to view full size).
