Wyeth and Model

The pic below is what I think, might be, the final. Thoughts?



Just finished the sketch on this one. From a reference photograph of the artist N.C. Wyeth in front of his painting "Round-Up", using a model who is seated on a saddle. This one will be interesting to see if I can pull it off. Definitely the most difficult to date.

I don't usually post works in progress. But as my painting time in the past few, and the next few, days are limited, I thought I'd post what I started yesterday. I hope to finish it before the end of the weekend.
~~ Well, I think he's finished. Would like to hear any comments anyone may have.

This was painted using an Edward Curtis photograph from 1905 as a reference. It depicts Pose-a Yew, a Nambe Indian Brave. I don't know the story of this Brave, but the look he conveys, appears to me as one of defeat, hence the name of the painting.

Painted this from another Edward Curtis photograph. My first portrait larger than life size.
