NaMoPaiMo - National Model Painting Month 2018

The month of February 2018, I am participating in the Facebook group NaMoPaiMo - National Model Painting Month. (very image heavy)

See group here

In January I really wasn't sure I would be able to get anything done, but I pleased to say I signed up and have completed my model.

I won this set of Earth Pigments and my model from a drawing in the Group! I was very excited! I hardly ever win anything model horse related and this was so very exciting for me!!

I also decided to do a second model just to do it. I wanted to try my sculpting skills. Here is a before and after of my sculpting - I am still struggling with my sculpting ability. 


Then it was onto Primering. Very hard to do in cold weather but I managed.

It was posted in the group to take a selfie with you and your model - Here is me with mine and then the full collage of participants with theirs. 

There was a sad moment where everyone was posting pictures of their pets with them and their models. I don't have a pet right now to post pictures with and was reminiscing. I shared an old picture of Gabby with a model I was working on in 2006 or so. 

I did a painting day on a day off from work. I also did a video - it can be seen on my facebook page here.


Then I spent yesterday and today and I completed my Official model and my secondary model. 

Official Model: with real horse I used as partial reference. 

Secondary Model: with real horse I used as partial reference.
