More Like a Mule
Here is another progress report on the sculpture of the Marine guiding his mule-- A Mule and his Marine is a more realistic title...
Yesterday I worked on the figures' heads, adding muscle and skin to the skulls.
Adding a fleshed-out head to the sculpture certainly gave the mule a spark of life... I hope that one day soon he may even look stubborn!
I am a landscape and portrait painter of the Classical Realist school, inspired by the masters of art history as I paint the world around me.
I am currently serving as a Combat Artist in the US Marine Corps.
