Currently I'm preparing the art that will become the full size stencils to paint the regimental flags. Since I've never painted on silk before I thought best to practice painting different elements of the flag first. The eagle of the regimental flag will be a fairly involved project. what makes it challenging is that I will have to paint this image twice. Stars are also a large part of both flags so I've painted several already with more to go. I just finished painting the eagle's head and will do a few more elements to get an idea of what's ahead of me.
|The stars are really gold but photographed yellow for some reason.|
