As promised, and right on schedule, the alkyd oil fleshtone areas and craft acrylic tan undercoat for the horse. Giddy up!
A rainy evening made it easy to forego my usual walk after the Young Master's bedtime, so I managed to get into the painting chair a bit earlier than planned. An hour or so later, and the fleshtone and basic undercoat on the horse have been blocked in. Tomorrow evening, the blacks: officers' hats, cartridge pouches, gaiters and shoes. Beyond that, either basic dark blues, or dark browns. We'll see how the painting muse strikes.
