This is the second issue of the Guides for Artists and Collectors, an annual supplement to the Equine Collectibles magazine.
Basic Principles of Pattern Design describes the concepts behind designing pinto, appaloosa and pintaloosa patterns. In addition to exploring the visual categories of patterns and how white can be boosted or suppressed, there are practical topics like strategic color placement and recreating missing information (“what about the other side?”).
