Burnt umber + black; and gloss varnish on the eyes...
We are very close to the real colors. Now I have to paint the hairs (that are definitively black...)

Draken,you hava done great painting job,but eyes look unnatural.keep in mind that we dont paint them like humans.And I will explain why.Horses pupil is bigger regarding the eyeball,so it doesnt leave showing any white spots besides.Its rather gloss black or dark brown if you see some regerence pics.

Thank you Zetman. Of course it's possible to make a correction, but Riboy is a dark horse, with dark eyes and in this case, more white in the eyes gives more intensity... That's why, even if I fully agree that you're right, I will not modify the eyes.
But once again, thank you; your intervention is really helpful for the future (because I will paint other horses)

Well...

...I was not convinced to be correct with my painting. I showed Riboy to my friend and she said me the figure have to be darker. OK, no problem but I prefer to remove all the paint and to restart on a clean base...

Removing the paint:
- first, white spirit to remove oil paint
- secondly, methanol to remove acrylic base

In the process, little reparation made with putty...
