Ambolena Layer 4
Before we get further into problems, I'd like to relate triumphs. Here she is at Layer 2 (after sealing). Somehow I did not get a picture of Layer 1.
Here's Layer 3, near side.
NaMoPaiMo gives the opportunity to REALLY get to know a sculpture! Previously this act had been tied to tackmaking -- it is a privilege of the tackmaker to know a model so intimately. But Ambolena is a foal and won't get to wear more than a halter.
Problems don't come singly. Sunday she went from unfinished to Layer 4 in one day. But she also picked up another difficulty when I sprayed too close to freshly-dusted black pastel on the last layer. You can see it on her full portrait too.
As for the dappling, there won't be much (this is a filly). Let's just say that I can sense the growth of dreams and wishes when they're only a few minutes old... and that there is room for dreams, during this magical month.
