The Piper


I saw this guy at our local St. Patrick's Day Parade and couldn't resist him. He was fun to paint because I got to use colors like phthalocyanine green and phthalocyanine blue to recreate the uniform. I may never get to use them again!

Hi John,

Once again...great work.

Thanks so much Paola, Jason and Scott!
This one is 16.5 x 11.5 acrylic. It's painted in my sketch book. I found them last time I was in London. They're made by Daler and Rowney and I really like the paper and how it takes the paint. I also like the odd size.

Another great piece, Johnny! Myself, I use pthalo blue all the time. Perhaps that's my problem.

Stunning painting great colour. My grand father was a piper in the Royal Scots Fusiliers and it reminds me of him :)
