I think Samuel is now finished, I was having a problem with getting the background evened up. I'll put that down to using black which I really dont like using because it always ends up looking streaky. It's now had 3 coats and I think that has done it just need to varnish it now, so waiting for it to dry off again. I have also been putting some more paint on the Ostrich but I'm not liking it enough to put another picture up here just yet. I have to say that this picture fascinates me a bit, if you look at it side on it looks like he is looking out of the picture, really strange. Also, it doesn't matter where you stand he is looking at you it's really odd.
