Roller - finished
Here's the final (I think) image of Roller. I have fought with this image and its still not correct. I can't get the focus or colour correct on it, no matter how hard I try under artificial light. I will try for daylight, but in the meantime here it is. I may give a glaze of transparent oxide brown over the board when this layer is dry to complete it and give some warmth to the wood, but aside from that, there should not be much tweaking to do.
Its sitting on the top of my old file cabinet to dry along with an eclectic mix of other paintings, props and tools. the little wooden manikin of a cat I bought a few years ago, but haven't used it yet. There are endless manikins of various animals and body parts available. I have a classic human female manikin, about 16 inches tall, which makes for interesting drawing when I have time. I should take the wooden cat manikin for a test draw too soon. Perhaps on my Buddha board which finally arrived today. More on that tomorrow.
