    i have just finished this bust. i have tried many new things on this bust after watching alot of talented painters at work a cple weeks ago in Tulsa. (thanks guys). i have changed the blanket several times wanted a quilt type blanket , but i felt it distracted from the bust. so here are some in progress photos along with the finished ones. still need a base.

    You made a good choice I think Rick. Much of quilting is about the stitching. Without the stitched texture on a bust this scale it would be a difficult effect to pull off. The last version looks really good.

    Rick ,

    Nice work , the blanket roll looks so much better , quilting is hard to pull off IMO .....on my Confederate I must have changed mine far too many times !!!!

    Nice butternut colour and fleshwork with good 5 o'clock shadow

    How was the fit of this bust , how many pieces did it consist of ?

    If anyone has one they don't want ...pm me !!!!

    He turned out great Rick and like the others said the finished blanket is the best choice. It was a pleasure meeting you and seeing this in person at our last painting jam. I think we are going to do another on Decemeber 17th.
