Next, learn how to capture the look of the horse’s sleek coat and mane as well as its hooves. Get tips for recreating the unique colors and markings of a variety of horses, before Andrea helps you paint tack and hardware. Then, discover how to give your portrait a realistic finish with layering, glazes, highlights and final details.
