    It is really enjoyable to follow the sbs photos. I am particularly impressed by the dapple effect of the horse. Did you use airbrush or paint brush ? Your advice how to achieve it is highly appreciated. Thanks

    no, everithing is done using the brush, it's a wet on wet technique using oils. Go throught the post to see how i did it
