Today I got to paint the most anticipated part of the painting, the figure. Come back tomorrow and see the finished piece!

It has been fun watching this scene develop, and to anticipate the look of the petroglyphs. The "face" in the rock outcropping is a very nice touch.

Thanks Brian! I didn't intentionally put the "face" in the rock though a lot of people are noticing it. I think it's sort of cheesy to do and I was going to paint it out once someone pointed it out to me, but then I thought there are certain times that you can see things like that in rock formations so I guess I'll just leave it.
