The Chestnut Arabain

I bought this ceramic unpainted bisque model a few years ago from Debbie Poole. I originally painted her a dapple grey, but I wasn't 100% happy with how the model turned out. So I wrapped her up in bubble wrap and the poor model sat languishing in a drawer for months. Feeling re-inspired, I found my pastels, and got her out again. I just played with some colours on her using the pastels, and found I really liked the chestnut coat colour that was coming through the many layers.

I am now thrilled with how the model has turned out, and she will no longer sit in a drawer under wraps!

I will be creating a tutorial soon on how to paint a model horse using pastels, so please check back often. :)

Thanks for visiting "Farmyard Crafts"! Honestly, I'm really not into horses... but your ceramic model is BEAUTIFUL! You've done such an awesome job on your painting. I'm in awe.
