The Perry experiment, part 2

Perry horse WIP: forelegs left and right views

A small update tonight. I’ve finished painting the forelegs – three shades of grey (Vallejo dark grey, neutral grey and light grey) over black with only very sparing use of the lightest grey. Also painted the fetlocks (if that’s the correct term, I’m not too good on equine anatomy) with some even lighter grey and white (Foundy arctic grey and white). And I did the hooves too – not very exciting.

Now that I look at these photos again, I’m a little disappointed that they don’t show up the white blaze on the horse’s face very well. I’ll have to take a more front-on picture next time.

    Hi Martin,
    Looks great so far. What colour do you paint the hooves? (Hows that for a boring question?!!)

    Colours for the hooves were basecoat of German Camo Black Brown; first highlight of Burnt Umber and second highlight of Beige Brown – all Vallejos.
