Tobiano Dafydd

Just for fun, here are the photos of the bay tobiano Dafydd, who will be going up on MHSP in less than an hour. I wanted to show him here because I've been playing around with the way to paint to get softer contrast, using a typewriter eraser on the raw underglazes.

Instead of clean, strong lines demarking the white and the black on his mane and tail, he has softer, blended lines. That is from using the typewriter eraser to remove the raw paint on the high spots, then hitting it again and removing some more. You can see it in the tail image below.

His hooves also had some erasing and rehitting, so the grey stripe is soft, shows some detail, and blends beautifully with the shell color.
