Big Bear

Here's the last one I'll be able to finish before the trip to Ohio for the Dayton Ohio Artistry in Wood show.

Big Bear stands at just under 18" with the oak base so he's a pretty impressive Drummer heading off to the big Pow Wow.   I did a lot of paint mixing to achieve the colors of the blanket and shirt.  Some Red in with the Midnight Blue for the blanket and a little Midnight Blue with Green for the shirt.  This is fun to do but make sure you remember the color ratios in case your need some later for a touch-up.   I explained the drum construction in the earlier post so won't repeat it here. His earrings are made from aluminum wire left natural for a silver look.

I really like this piece as the character has a relaxed regal look about him.  Clearly, he must be the head Drummer and possibly even the lead singer.  I guess we'll just have to use our imagination to figure out which.

Again, as Google has did a number on my photo posting this is the only photo of the piece.   As always, I will look forward to your comments.
