He could just be a pinto horse...its not just a colour i have a pinto/connemara :P
judging by the first pic it looks like he has a bit of andalusian in him cos of his body shape...
but.....he does kinda have the same conformation as my mare but hes not a paint :P

His convex profile makes me think warmblood... He actually looks a lot like Art Deco, the Dutch Warmblood. Here's a link to his photo gallery:Art Deco photo gallery

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say he looks like he has some saddlebred in him. His head shots really shows it.

He could very well be a paint, but you'd have to be certain of his breeding to be sure. The only difference between paint & pinto is the breed (paints can ONLY be of TB or QH breeding, whereas a pinto is any another breed with these markings).
I agree with annaleah in that he could have saddlebred in him, of maybe TWH.
He is a Tobiano Pinto though ;)

My guess, by the size of his head and the slope in his shoulder...Spotted Saddle horse which is a generalized breed registry for anything gaited with color. Here is a friends Spotted Saddle for comparison

I would vote TWHX. I just see it in the
build, but mostly in the head.

^ only for certain breeds. a registry will do it if you want to register you horse with them and the horse wasnt born into the registry, if you know what i mean.

he looks like a paint x to me. i have noticed that many paints have roman noses like that, but perhaps he is pinto (any other pinto colour but without tb blood).

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.
