The clock is ticking on getting Draft Horse Classic entries done. I redid the sketch for the painting and got the gold base coat on today. You'll recognize this horse from a photo shoot I did a couple weeks ago. This is Aragorn, the Gypsy stallion. It's going to have a less than exciting title because I want to really get the point across that he's only a yearling. He'll be MUCH more "feathery" and have a bigger mane and tail when he's full grown.
The camera flash made this pretty wild, but the gold is just the base coat for the background. It'll probably end up being red. Or blue. Or... eeny meeny miney moe. (in other words I'm still thinking about it). ;-)

And I worked on the Rosecomb too. I'm thinking if I drop some sort of simple barnyard scene behind him I could even use this as a DHC entry (it's on a 12x12 piece of paper, I'm just cropping it when I scan it). The bird itself will be scanned and placed into a digital image, but there's nothing saying I can't "finish" the drawing and sell that too!
