Isn't this guy something? I love painting this new limited edition sculpture. Some folks hate him and some love him because of his unusual head, but he is in fact sculpted after the African Dongola horse. This is a rather ancient breed that comes down in part from the Barb, the same as the Arabian. This boy has had a new mane and tail added by the casting company Resins by Randy. Deb Buckler did the resculpting.
This one is painted in a smutty buckskin. His lower legs have been painted to look slightly dirty as if he were running in the desert. He also has some cracks in his unshod hooves. The open mouth is very effective and the sculptor has included teeth and tongue. Very kewl!
I haven't been doing too much watercolor the past couple of weeks as I have had orders to finish up on with sculptures.
The first one was a filly foal that needed to be repainted to improve her coat color and I think she turned out really cute.

The next ones were a pair of llamas, mom and baby. These are new sculptures that my casting company is doing. These were painted for them.
