12.29.2010 >>>My first two paintings of 2011 will be having to do with the Alamo.  I have been asked to make some work for a show at The Emily Morgan Hotel in San Antonio.  It is the official hotel of the Alamo.  The show will be up for the big celebration for the 175th Anniversary of the Alamo! So exciting! 


I did a sketch of my second Alamo painting today.  It is going to include a Mexican solider in the foreground and the shadows of Jim Bowie and Davy Crockett resting on the side of the Alamo in the background.  



I had a lot of time to paint today so I came a long way on this one.  



I worked on the color of the Alamo building and on some of the shadows in the columns.


I changed the color of the shadows of Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie and I also changed the color of some of the shadows on the columns.


I worked on the color of the stones on the Alamo building again.


More work on the columns.  I also worked on the soldier's buttons and made the dirt a lot darker.  


Today I finished! I made he shadow darker and worked on the man's uniform more.
