JBC: White Patriotic Jumper Treatment, Oil Paint 1


Our White Patriotic Jumper had treatment of his parts:
Treatment, Tail, Part I;
Treatment, Tail, Part II, Treatment, Tail, Part III,
Treatment, Knees and Thighs, and Treatment, Belly Split.
Patriotic was thoroughly Prepared for Finish Work,
and a base coat of Golden White Gesso was applied.

The White Patriotic Jumper is a sample treatment,
so our client, Restore Oregon, can see the process from start to finish!


This post is about oil painting the Patriotic Jumper!

Remember, his tail was added after base coats!

DAY 1

 

Undercoats or first coats.

A warm leather color so when the top wears off the undercoat will begin to show.

White paint, layers of white paint.

The days are not consecutive —
bottom layers have to dry before
another coat is applied.

 

 

DAY 2

Saddle, red trims, silver medallion and the yellow undercoat for the corn.

Mixing was done and notes were kept.
The oil paint went into tubes so I had extra for touchup or another horse.

Anything can apply paint!  Toothbrush was for splatters.
I wanted a bright coat on top of the leather coat, then splatters of the darker red.
Again, saddles wear, and this red, as it wears, will wear in an interesting manner.

I tented the horse for the splatters.  I will be adding many white coats
but it still is a good idea not to have to paint over or remove a color.


Tenting gone.


Red trim first coat, is applied.

Then the yellow undercoat for the corn.

Finally, the silver on the medallion.

Oh yes, another white coat around legs and large areas!

Next, Day 3, will be posted Friday!
