COLORADO KID
Painting Design by Olva Stewart Pharo


Each artist starts out with a "blank slate" horse form.
They can change the surface or not. As a sculptor I had to
correct some of the anatomy such as the eyes
and add some detail to the mane and tail.

Moved it home to finish it up. Deepened the hue of the yellow.
Added black to the eyes. Makes the eyes more alive. Started to add the gold.
