This is a pencil sketch for a future figure study painting. It's another early war subject that is wearing a patched and cut down uniform that was issued early in 1776. Like the American Civil War of later years there were a variety of uniforms worn by the fledgling American army.
I need to make a few anatomical corrections before transferring the drawing to multimedia board. I have not yet decided on the size for this one. It will either be 8 x 10 or 11 x 14. I like the 8 x 10 size, although the larger size is probably more practical for use in reproduction.
