    Hey guy, I just finished painting the horse except for the mane, tail, hoofs , horse shoes and the inside of the mouth, will paint these in step 4.

    I have given the ornaments and fringes a base coat of acrylic red while waiting for the oils, the horse still needs extreme shadows and highlights.

    This is my color formula for the horse:
    Oils
    1 -Base - Windsor Newton brown madder alizarin + Rembrandt burnt sienna.
    2 - Medium shadows - Liquitex dioxide purple,
    Any purple will do.
    3 -Dark shadows - mix ivory black into medium shadow.
    4 - Medium highlight - Mars red.
    5 -Extreme highlights - Mars orange applied to the uppermost part of the horse.
    6-Extreme shadows - pure Ivory black.

    I will paint the hoofs, horse shoes, mane, tail, and stockings in step 4.

    Cheers

    Hi Rocco
    Looking good so far I think that a black horse will set off the colourful figure
    Which colour scheme have you in mind for Kato?

    Hi Rocco

    Very nicely done my friend, very subtle shading on the horse, you say you have to add highlights to this, I dont think it needs much highlighting, just a touch.... Great
