Dapple Gray and Stars

by Natoli in Traditional Color

Ach, that was a challenge, you know!

This is a commission for one of the professors in my Academy :)
His little niece loves horses, especially mares, these with dapple grey coat ;) And full moon of course :D So, he ordered a picture like that for her birthday ;)

Why was it so big challenge? Because it is A2 size! My first BIG one with watercolors and markers. This is also the cause of poor quality - this is Photoshopped photo of the work. I think as for photo it does good ;)
Also, please, don't say a word about the anatomy xD That was big battle with the commissioner and I had to change A LOT (not always thinking those changes were ok xP)

Enjoy!

PS. Did you ever try to paint a dapple cray coat with watercolors?! Hooooly.... if it wasn't been for salt I would probably end drawing each and every 'star' by hand O.o Still many of them had to be drawn with white gelpen xP
