Chief Gray Bull

6x8 oil - attempt #2 at placing thicker paint down with decisive strokes and leaving it alone. This is proving to be difficult - I fight the urge to blend every second and have to work more slowly and think more, which is not my strong suit.

The model is a chainsaw carved wooden indian in my wife's garden. c&c welcome!

Re: Chief Gray Bull

This has such a strong feel to it, Larry. Even though the thicker paint and brushstrokes are trying your patience, you're doing very well with this style. The pops of red in the background are a great touch. Great job!

I agree with every comment so far - plus I love the texture.
