I promise I won't post pictures of every brush stroke but the first base coat of paint is always exciting as it shows eventual flaws on the smooth surface, but fortunately I didn't find any!
brown because even though adult Friesians are black (foals start with a
beautiful rusty brown coat) I'm going to build up her coat in many
transparent layers to hopefully create depth. I'm going to leave her to
completely dry and let the clay absorb the paint before I continue. For
the moment my first horse Lila Gubben is comforting the Friesian mare
after her first treatment which is always kind of scary for a horse. ;-)
