Sitting Bull 16" x 12" Not Saunders Waterford
This is Sitting Bull the famous Sioux medicine man taken in the 1870's. The original is in a sort of sepia/black and white with very strong contrast, not much graduation. So far I've done about a dozen different ones, most already discarded, but hopefully they are gradually improving although I realise I still have a way to go. Charles Reid is my mentor in that I'm trying to emulate the way in which he paints portraits.
