This is a study of a Marchador stallion, Júpiter Quitumba. marchador-moon I tried 4 different ways to make dapples (spots). Nothing seemed to work for me.

The photo of this stunning horse is licensed CC by-sa:
He’s owned by Quitumba Ranch in Brazil. That Wikipedia page says author = Fábio Vidigal, so maybe that’s the name of the photographer. Don’t you love that neck?

Oh, this is gouache, except for a wash of transparent blue over the ‘sky’.
