I promise.
I think I now know everything there is to know about the shadows hats cast on the face.
I have both sides of him and a full face and unless he brings his horse, he is done...

and a tinier face.

I don't think it is broken, but I tripped today and seem to have landed on my left middle finger.
It is a lovely baloon purple, so I am sticking it in a cup of ice and no more cowboys OR Indians tonight.

Sweet! I'm tempted to use foul language to decribe just how much this jams, but ...I do like. It's real, but not "mummy art". Cool stuff...muted violets, emerging hot spots.

This is fantastic!! You are so confident in your color choices and they work! This guy has a serious bandana. I would like to see some landscapes now...*SMILE*
PS...sorry about the finger!!! Keep it in ice.
