Painted Pony ( Antique Wooden Horse Toy) - 8" x 10" Pastel

I bought this liitle wooden horse at a tag sale...I wish I knew the story behind it. Perhaps someone made it for a child, before the days of plastic Breyer horses? Or maybe it's a decorative item, who knows. It was fun to paint, though!

I always struggle with shadow and background colors, and wasn't thrilled with the paper I used (still waiting for my replacement Wallis paper to arrive). I am satisfied with it, though.
