The Fairchild project

I just completed my donation for the Artist Preservation Group's next fundraiser. The proceeds from the works auctioned off will go towards the restoration of Lucius Fairchild's forage cap and vest that he was wearing at the battle of Gettysburg where Fairchild lost an arm. For more information on the APG and it's efforts go to the links and click on the Artist Preservation Group.

The painting was done in acrylics and gouache on multimedia board and is 11 x 14. This is the first time that I have done a figure study with a complete background. While there is still more to learn about the technical side of painting, I managed to finish the painting without getting too stressed out.

Wonderful work, pard!...As usual. Love the blue of his uniform. Hope to see more studies from you soon.
