(Click here to see the first, the Chinese Water Serpent Horse.)
I named this Horse with Grapes!
Why am I naming them differently than CW Parker called them?
Because mine are not historically accurate but an homage to the various styles,
as I had to use many disparate images — black and white images, frontal images, detail images, and images from other carousels — while researching to create one horse.

W16 8 25 RO Jantzen Carousel Grapes 007I continue the background of a greyed image evoking an old photograph,
while tying the past to the present.  The mane and tail also used waterproof grey
to lay in accents under the watercolor, using the technique called grisaille.

Bright yellow and green were undercoats to brighten the top coat.
As I built up color, the original pink looked a bit pale;
I switched it to Quinacridone Coral.

The Fineline Masking fluid was a part of painting on this horse,
where I used it to allow the tassels and the highlights of the grapes to remain white.
Sky, grass, and final touches added,and this cornucopia is complete!

These images are donated to raise money for the restoration of the carousel!
