This is a painted study of N.C. Wyeth's "The King's Henchman". Wyeth's original was done in oil at 42"x48".
I wasn't trying to copy the original in visual detail as much as in the spirit of Wyeth's style of painting. I was also seeing how far I could push painting with gouache to mimic oil. I feel I achieved mixed results on both parts, but it was a very good learning exercise.
