    Hello everyone,

    Stunning work Terry as always. The enlargements give a great guide to your detailed oil painting technique and are worth downloading for reference.

    I would really like to know your technique on accomplishing the flea bit hair pattern on the horse. It is stunning.

    Hi Jaybo, thanks for all the great compliments. When I paint horses I like to experiment with different horse markings and the techniques to achieve the effect I want. With this particular horse I base coated in a light grey acrylic then I did the usual shading and highlighting with oils. When dry I then “spotted” the horse with a slightly darker shade of the base coat colour but in oils. Once dry I then mixed a slightly darker shade of grey and again “spotted” it in. This process was repeated with varying darker shades of grey. Once all dry I mixed a slightly lighter shade of the basecoat in oils and applied this in the same manner as previously. Repeatedly lighter shades were applied right up to a pure white. I found the overall process quite effective in achieving the result I was after but it does require a degree of patience and because I use oils over acrylic there is also the drying time between applications to factor in. Hope this makes sense. I am currently working on a figure of the Polish General Jan Dombrowski who is riding a Piebald horse and I am finding this to be particularly interesting. I hope you will like the final result when I post it here in a week or so’s time.

    Thanks again
    Terry

    Really interesting to read your techniques ...what about the gold lacework, details if possible

    Look forward to seeing the Piebald horse and the uniform of Dombrowski

    Happy benchtime

    Thanks for the info, Terry. I imagined you’d used a Spatter Cap on an airbrush to achieve the horse colouring.
