I'm working my way through this Pirate fetish, Here is another warming up painting, getting ready for a project is sometimes more fun than the real thing.
I used some left over reference for this painting, as often happens with photo shoots, I have way too many good photos than I can use for a specific project, this image grew out of a left over and will hopefully find a place in a procect I am working on. Hopefully you will enjoy it at least as much as I do.

The temperature in the sky is fantastic. I really like the brush work in the sky and brush.

I look forward to seeing the next pirate.

I appreciate all the kind words, I'm always trying to improve my work, this one was fun to paint. I'm trying some new techniques with my brushes and the results are becoming more satisfying.

thanks again.
