The Painted Figure
It's been very difficult lately to find the time to work on my Cooling His Heels project. I did, however, find the time to paint my cowboy figure. He turned out quite nicely. Simple, yet endearing. I chose a simple color scheme of thin acrylic washes to paint him. Since this fellows toes are to be a major focal point of the piece, I highlighted them by painting them with a darker red than the rest of the feet. Here are a few photos of the results.
I hope to find some time tomorrow to work on filling out the scene with add-ons. I'll keep you updated on my progress.
