Dapple and Stars by Natoli Dapple and Stars by Natoli
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

Ink, ecoline, markers, white gelpen on A3 bristol board (BTW I will have to look for something better for watercolors when it comes to bigger sizes :/ )

Nie dziwie się, że to było wyzwanie ale wyglada swietnie c:. Jak sie przypatrzec szczegółom. Kolorystyka jest przecudowna, wzory na siersci i grzywie takie żywe. W ogóle, ta czerń jest piekna, z tymi przebijającymi brązami. A anatomia nie zawsze musi być perfekcyjna ;>
Jestem ciekawa czym malowalaś tlo, bo nie wyglada na konwencjonalny pedzel.

Ze względu na rozmiar ciężko było jakoś to ugryźć. Koniec końców zanurzyłam chusteczkę higieniczną w szarej farbie mozno rozwodnionej i zrobiłam szarą bazę pod mokre w mokrym. A potem duzo farby, ale już zwykłym pędzlem naciapane i to się samo tak porozlewało ;)


Cieszę się, że się podoba :)

Ah tak, chusteczka. Też stosuje do akwareli, jak jest jeszcze wilgotna warstwa to mozna osuszyć na niej ładne wzory.

Ooh, I really love how this came out, especially since dappled is my favorite coat pattern^^
everything is so peacefully composed, and I love your star technique. Each twinkles individually with its own light :)
And the moon! How did you get such a milky white composition?
The mare in the fg is also breathtaking! I don't see a huge issue with the anatomy - the flowing mane and tail are so natural :)

MIlky white? :D I think it's the gray - I used 'warm' grey for shading the moon and also in whole picture there are lot of warm shades ^^
