More Pros Painted Pics

Here's more pics of the "Pros from Dover". I should mention that Lauzun's uniform, if most havn't already guessed, is totally made up. There are several images, from different artist, depicting the Duc and none agree with each other. Some have him with a moustache and fur cap! As there is only one knowm image of the Lauzun, and it shows him neither a uniform or having a moustache. Therefore, I took a little from each artist rendition and made my own intrepretation of what he looked like at the siege of Yorktown! No doubt, this whole project was fun to create and probably one of the more satisifying large pieces I've done to date.

Up next is a piece inspired by Keith Rocco Napoleonic subject.

Thanks for following. Stay tuned.

WHAT?!!! A made up uniform? Just when I thought I was done with therapy! I'm just beside myself. It's time for me to go to my happy place.lol

It's a bit of a mind bender when you have a number of sources and no two are exactly alike. Do what ya gotta do pard. ~Gary

Yes, I too had many sessions with the doc while creating the piece. He actually started charging me with overtime fees. C'mon doc, I need help here! His reply was that I was incurable and I should just surrender to the gods of historical fiction.
