My vote goes to a splash white Buckskin. ;D

How about a tri-color paint & play with the background & pattern to create an optical illusion. Kind of like Bev Dolittle's painting with the pintos in the snow.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Here's the background!
4 hours of endless painting but I think it looks ok
*Note* It is not quite as dark as it appears in the photo!

I think my jaw literally dropped! I love this already. The background itself is fantastic!

I definitely think something more along the lines of a sooty buckskin, something darkish with pretty shiny highlights that will go good with the orange glow from the fire, as well as black points are just going to look AWESOME. And I definitely agree, splash or frame. Maybe blue eyes?
