This painting was inspired by a figure sculpted by Jason Whitman. Check out Jason's figure here. http://jaywhitsminiatures.blogspot.com/2007/10/brunswick-grenadierregiment-von.html I really liked the forward sense of movement given to the figure. That, along with the fact that Hessian troops just look cool. This painting was done in acrylics on 8 x 10 multimedia board. I plan to bring this to the APG show in Gettysburg this August. Acrylics continue to offer a number of challanges, with quick drying time toping the list.
