Isis 2015

Isis in June 2015

Looking a bit tired, June 2015.

Back to wood again I decided to completely renew the gesso except for the belly. It might have been OK to patch the last gesso but it is hard to ensure the patch edges would stand up to constant riding. So here he is, back to wood again. Better safe than sorry. All in good order except for a few cracks which had opened up. Filled again!

Sanding down the new gesso Sanding down the many coats of new gesso to give a smooth surface for painting. A very dusty job, best done outside in nice weather.

New paint and mane New paint - darker dapples and a paler body - it's fun to try different colours. Maybe next time will be something else.

Ready to ride All ready to ride again.
