    Yes, fully with oils. The main difficulty is to represent reflections on the hair in such a way that the piece may be acceptable from any angle of vision.

    You are right Paul ... And difficult that the black not became to much grey when you do the light ... What colors did you use ?

    What a coincidence. I just started a black horse yesterday evening.
    Is it right that you build your black with a mix of Burnt Umber and Ultramarine Blue?

    Hi Marc.
    No, in fact I mixed ivory black with a small part of caput mortuum purple from Old Holland.

    (y) Yes, because of the gold / silver braids and red festoon in the middle.
