Native American Portrait with Jan Schoonover
Jan and I just finished up the latest project in the Sculptured Leather Art Lesson Series. Lesson #6 will be a Native American portrait. Jan decided that this picture looks really nice with the natural leather color, so there will be no coloring on this one. Jan's turned out really nice, as usual. I think mine would have turned out better if I'd have had a little more time to work on the detail. While we were waiting for putty to dry, Jan went over the the things he teaches in a hairing class. Tomorrow before I head back for home we're going to go over the steps for creating several different types of horns and antlers. The hair and horns lesson is one of the classes scheduled for the Dimensions in Leather conference coming up in Australia in July.
