Piper David Muir Study

Posted Nov 29, 2018, 9:48:24 PM

This was an attempt - ATTEMPT I SAY - at trying to do a portrait.  Moderators please note this lad has been dead for over 200 years so I could get a signed model approval form, hehehehhee.  David Muir served in the British Army during the Crimean War and was awarded the Victoria Cross.  Loved the whole lore of pipers who HAD to be brave to be playing a "wooden octapus" while being shot at.  Oh sorry it is a watercolour using prismacolour (cheapo paints the kind you could get in a tin box with a little brush and little squares of colours). Enjoy and please remember to be kind, hehehhehhe
