    Hi everyone

    NO !!! its not finished , began looking at the horse and found 2 hairs embedded in the paint ...so......Sanding and swearing I removed them resulting in beginning to repainted using oils and stippling ...that's getting there now

    Kept looking at the leopard skin colouring ........unhappy with it as well sanding back the raised spots , little bit of puttywork , now reprimed and basecoated ....all ready for brushes

    Might be going on a bit but in a strange sort of way ...it's enjoyable ...honest !!

    Maybe not finished this year ...2022 is looking promising

    Happy benchtime

    Hairs in the paint Busty . . . . .Really :eek::oops: (Don't worry I'm sure Santa will bring some new non shedding brushes:D ;))

    Admire your sense of exactidue matey. I've got to be honest I'm not sure I'd have had the courage to rub down and repaint.
    Hopefully Crimbo shopping will be done and dusted soon so you can press on to the finish. If not I can wholeheartedly recommend a dose of painting to help digestion after Christmas dinner . . .

    Cheers

    Cheers Leggy ....it's not my fault I have such long flowing locks of hair ........

    Had to look up what exactitude meant ....impressive big word ......horse looking better now and it would have annoyed me ...and someone would have noticed ....

    Nearly there ........in celebration when it is ....change your vest ...LOL



    Off to finish off the leopard skin prior to going all spotty

    Then just the face on him to paint , mount the sword and sabretache and finito

    Have a great Christmas and safe 2022

    Hi everyone

    YES !! ........still on the bench ...lost the mojo a bit ..probably too many sprouts at Christmas !.....anyway , I have now detailed and repainted the bridle harness.....several times and added a little texture to the horse , it's a soft sheen in reality , added the tongue , and blaze , all painted

    Still to decide on the mane colour

    On the shaberaque, I took out the spots there ....initially bad move but now repainted the backing colour with highs...so the spots are next , then will repaint the green, red, gold edgings, once done will add the reins...these are all painted ready...Just to add the ends and buckles when in position

    Any comments are always welcome

    Some iffy pics

    Happy benchtime

    Thanks for looking
