I painted this fellow as part of the Small Pony series. Like many of my ponies, I started with a quinacridone gold background. Unlike many of them, I left the pony area white and filled in with color. This time I used a very pale blue for the blaze, rather than the yellow that usually ends up there. I think it gives him a more serious look, but I lightened his mood with a few dashes of yellow in his mane, face, and neck, then brightened him up even more with a bold dash of red on his neck. Even with all the color, he's actually one of my more subdued Paint Ponies!
