I dabble sometimes...

This is a painting I did a few years ago. I like to get away from the workbench every once in awhile and explore other "arts". I can draw a pretty good stick figure, but direct to canvas? Eh, not so much. So, I went to the old method of making a grid and transferring. I've done this a few times and it helps keep proportions as accurate as possible. The subject is a French Cuirasier, between 1790's-1805, and it's a oil on board copy of a sketch done by the great French Artist, Edouard Detaille.
