Painting in Greyscale

I wan't planning on posting again until after the Painting Challenge is over because I simply do not have the free time. And then my friend Elsie asked me if I would post some of my work for the Challenge and I was so touched by the request I decided to make time.

For those of you who have seen this on Curt's page, please notice that these are different pictures. I reshot the work against a neutral grey background. The sepia that you see is a result of the lighting. I do not know how to set the white balance on my camera, but one day I must learn. Also, I have included some close up shots of the work on the base.

I am aware that there are many shortcomings to this work. However, I have been painting for less than two years and this is my first attempt at a technique this advanced. So despite its problems, I am pleased with how this turned out.  

Things are finally returning to normal here and we have running water and a commode that flushes. I have 11 figures still on the painting table. Only one of those is for The Last Stand. The remainder will be done as normal submissions so that finally I can feel as if I have fully participated in this years Challenge.
