Latest figure study WIP


It feels good to post something, even something not yet finished. This study is represents one civilian turned soldier who helped hold Breed's and Bunker Hill in 1775, which went on to force the British to evacuate Boston for good in 1776. I have to finish the grass and fowling piece the soldier carries before it's done. The trees started out green and evolved into Autumn trees. The painting was done in acrylics and measures 8 X 10.

Gary, nice work. Looks like you've been watching John Adams on HBO. Great series.

Pete, Thanks. I only saw the first episode. The only reason I saw it was that the Holiday Inn my wife and I stayed at on Thursday had HBO. Overall the look of the series is pretty good. HBO has a site for John Adams that has some great behind the scenes videos. one way or another I'm sure I'll see the rest of the series. ~Gary
