I can see you were inspired. This is just great! I've seen actual pictures of my ancestors in the civil war and you have captured the look perfectly, even down to the frame type.

Congratulations.

Re: Creative interpretations: Civil War Soldier

Would like to have placed a tear on the cheek of my soldier. Anyone know how to do that?

Re: Creative interpretations: Civil War Soldier

I too keep coming back to this great civil war picture. Palms you did a great job with your portrait and it inspired me to give it a try. I kept the background just blurred it out. It has some interesting colors in it and shapes so I decided to let it stay in the portrait. This picture is loaded with texture so I didn't texture the finished painting. Hope I did well using this technique.

ps--- thanks for the water droplet lead --

Re: Creative interpretations: Civil War Soldier

bcarl you done great, and your treatment of the background is spot on, I think you are right about the colours and textures, maybe that is what has the appeal
