This study of Polish Cavalryman was painted on a wood panel made to look like a metallic plate. The effect was done using acrylic copper and gold paint on a tan background, with a coat of Liquitex Matte Medium on top to help the oils stick. One of those last minute decisions that turned out pretty cool.
I hate to see this blog just sitting here, but I've been extraordinarily busy working on a large book project. I'll try to update more regularly over the next few weeks. Now, however, I have to make final preparations for this blasted hurricane that coming. After the wind then!
