    Really captures a special moment; and tender scene between a father and son, just after the father has fired an arrow at his son's head :D

    Jaume mate! Goes to show you never really know what your work looks like until to you share it.
    I spent hours scribbling out that background, wanted to get it just right ;)
    Actually it's textured paper & I thought it provided a novel background, shame it detracts from figures.

    I've just invested in a light tent so will have a look at getting photos on plain background at some stage.

    Glad you could see textures, wasn't sure these would show up.

    Thanks for your acknowledgement, it means a lot.

    Tony, yep something bizarre about that eh mate!

    I tried to add a couple of allegorical links to the original story of William within this scene:
    • Split apple on ground, just after these had dropped off Walter's head. Crossbow bolt is still in the tree trunk ;-)
    • Back right corner is a large 'rotten apple' to represent Gessler - the villain of the story & reason William pulled 2 bolts from his quiver before he took aim.
    Thanks for comments, you going to QMHE in Brisbane this September?

    Thanks Edward for comments. Apples are magi-sculpt, base is celluclay with small bits of wood from our garden.
    Grass is wool strands, flowers are real tiny Aussie dried flowers.

    Great scene and really great painting, love the texture on the clothing, looks rough and woven wool. The little added details like the apple and bolt are perfect
