    The Bald headed horse.

    Hey guys, I delayed in painting the horse, My wife had me painting the recreation room, not a very enjoyable task., but I finally got back on track.
    The horse still needs more shadows and highlights.

    Thank you very much for your patience.

    advice and critique are most welcome.

    I- Primed horse with floquil primer.
    2- Undercoated the horse using burnt umber acrylic paint.

    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.


    The eyes
    used the same black mixture as stated above,when dry I will give the eye a wash with cadmium red deep, and add the catch light with a little titanium white.
    After eye is completely dry,I will mix some ttwo part clear epoxy glue and apply it over the entire eye, to give it a nice sparkle.

    The hoofs.
    Base - Parchment + raw Sienna.
    Shadow- burnt umber.
    Highlight - unbleached titanium.

    Horse shoes-
    Testor silver with a little burnt umber and ivory black added to it.
    Shadows - ivory black.
    Highlight- testor silver with a touch of burnt umber.
    Catch light - pure silver.

    The mouth - .

    The tongue
    Base- Cadmium red with a little parchment mixed into it.
    Highlight -Titanium white with a little bit of the base color.

    Teeth
    Base- unbleached titanium with a little burnt umber and a touch of cadmium red.
    Shadow- burnt umber.
    High light - unbleached titanium.
    Extreme highlights - titanium white.

    When completely dry, usually after two weeks, I will give it a light sheen
    I use a mixture of 25% linseed oil and 75% turps, I apply this mixture with a large flat brush, when dry, and it will give the horse natural looking sheen.

    Next I will paint the saddle.

    Cheers.

    Roc.

    I have to agree with everyone else Roc. Very nice looking. I generally only paint lighter horses because I can't seem to capture the "look" of the darker horses. Not the case with you. Again, great job (y) .

    Now that, my friend is a great looking horse. And your description of your different mixes is a thoughtful idea on your part. I know it will help me on my next mounted figure. Purple for medium shadows...hmmmm...never thought of that. Definitely something to try, thx. ;)

    Roc, I've been neglecting what our fellow painters are doing and I'd like to say that horse is looking great. I like the added touch of noting your formulas for the colors used, I know how valuable they are. Keep it up.~Gary
