    Jacek,

    Very nice painting on one of my favourite figures. I hope you enjoyed it - we need more "Injun" fans.

    Hello Jacek,

    Thank you for choosing the Hawkeye figure for your first Indian.

    I like the overall ochre tones although I think that some greens and blues (on the clothing or the scenic base) would 'spice up' the piece.

    IMO you can also improve on the Indian skin tones by using Naples Yellow instead of Titanium white in your mixes. Contrary to the general belief that American Indian skins need more red than Caucasian, it's the Naples Yellow that would make the difference by giving an 'inner glow' to the native skin tones.

    On the historical aspect, the leggings used by the North Eastern tribes of that period were mostly made of black material (wool) decorated with ribbons (usually red silk).

    On the other hand, the beaded accessories (bandolier, possible bag, knife and sash) are well done.

    HTH,

    Q.

    Beautifully done, Jacek! As always! Quang's pose is super and very, very believable! I would like to have seen a fast-running stream parting on both sides of the rock, with some moss clinging to the rock.

    all the best,
    Dan
