Some excellent colors to paint, but I like the first one more too drunken
The second one is Finn horse I guess. Very Happy At least the photographer is Finnish. Laughing

That's Estonian Draught gelding Kill Bill Very Happy http://www.sukuposti.net/kuva/nayta/kuva/525511
Finnhorses can't be silver as far as I know.

Okay, thank you Very Happy Pretty similar as Finn horse!
Actually they can be, there's just a few silver colored Finn horses, but their fur color changes color winter and summer.. sunny

An amazing model, just beautiful. I am no expert on horses but I would like to see an even colour coat preferably over mottled markings just so it highlights the muscles and quality of the sculpt. That's my own selfish reason!!

That looks amazing.  Your paintwork has enhanced the already wonderful sculpting, thanks for sharing.

I'm guessing you used acrylics and pastels on this?  
How many layers of pastels did you use to build up the tones?  
Are the white spots on the flank done with pastel?

I'm happy you like it Harriet! Of course feel free to share these images on your Facebook page Very Happy
I'm also glad that you like the name! I'm fan of Elvis so I wanted to choose the name of one of his songs for one of horses in my collection, maybe more will follow Laughing I already think that "Moonlight Swim" would be nice name for any of the brown or black mare for example  Razz

Yes, it was painted with acrylics and pastels. I think it was between 7 and 10 layers of pastels, I'm not sure how many exactly. The dapples are done with normal brush and paint but I tried to soften their edges with some pastel powder later. Very Happy

Thanks for the explanation Anna.  I would also like to use pastels more for colouring but I'm not patient enough to spray and wait between each layer.  I think the effect is very nice with subtle tones.
