The painted version of Dark of Night
, this is the end product for
I don't usually paint my pieces, and I suspect I won't again except in very peculiar circumstances (outdoor pieces, etc.). Not simply because I don't paint and can't paint, which is obvious, but because I like to make things that look wooden on face value, evidenced by the lack of faces, etc on most of my pieces. (Although considering the number of fixed manes I seem to be doing, I might start painting manes.) On that note, any black parts on this piece are the original ebony showing through.Nevertheless
it is good to step outside our comfort zones from time to time, and this was a good experience, if only to confirm and concrete my feelings, and to give me new experiences! Here's to trying new things. I do need to work on my painting, though, because at some point I will need it, and I'm severely disappointed with the results here.
