  2. Excellent Paul
    I love the color that you give to your horses, your base coat is white or black?

    1. Thanks Vincent.
      Black. I nearly always base with black...very rarely with grey. It seems to suit my style..i like muted colours :-I

  6. The poses on those horses are so dynamic. Really like the shading and highlighting you achieved with them. The bright blues against it was a great choice.

    1. Thanks :-D
      I´m no expert :-D I keep getting sidetracked by different bits of the period...like the "Anarchy" 1135 to 1153, King Stephen and the empress Matilda.
