Default Painted Hobo

Well after being out all week I finally got him painted up. He is painted in acrylics and BLO and finished with satin lacquer. I think I will be carving another hobo and make a little scene out of this. Thanks for looking as always!

Hey Bud

I like him nice job,, but how did you get Harry to stand in place that long to copy him

Harry ,,you know I'm joking but you are just a GREAT sport and a real good MATE but just think this could be you if you didn't get out of the UK 30 to 40 years ago..

Corey,

He turned out FANTASTIC! Things like the detail in his shirt just make him so life like and the colors appear so very natural to the real world.

You did good (AGAIN )

True talent. Wish I could do something like that.
