This gal was fun to paint. I love dilute colors since they often show a lot of tonal variation and contrast, and many of them are often dappled as well. Win-win! I was originally going to make her much lighter, but as often happens when I work this horse had other ideas. I've learned not to fight it when it happens but rather go with the flow, as it always seems to work out for the best if I do.

This piece sold quickly and NAN-qualified her first time out.
