The Last Hunt—-Revisited
I am still working on changing the location of this Newsletter over to the new site (If you haven’t resubscribed to the new site yet, you probably should consider doing so soon.) https://rwalker548.wordpress.com/blog-posts/ . In the process of changing the Newsletter over to the new location, I have also been changing some things on the “Last Hunt”. There were a couple of details that I wanted to change, along with some changes in the color balance. Below is from the original paint.
“The Last Hunt” — Before
I don’t believe that the photo of this picture was the final from before, but it would have been close. At any rate, I have changed some of the facial images in a couple of the Shawnees, added detail to the rocks and trees in the background, and changed the way the painting was lighted. The latter made the most impact, and was done by applying a multitude of glazes over the painting. The picture below is where things are at the moment:
“The Last Hunt”— Final for the Moment.
You probably have figured out by now that I have a tendancy to use the word “Final” rather loosely. The reality is that as long as the painting is in my possession, it is subject to change. Actually, until one of my paintings is sold and is out of the range on my brushes, it is never complete. It all depends on where it is hanging in my gallery, what paint I might have on my pallet at a given time, and what condition my mind is in at that same given time. (I’ve been known to enjoy a glass of Scotch from time-to-time.)
Anyway, this is where the “Last Hunt” is at this moment in time. If you like it as it is now and don’t want it to change, I would suggest you buy it soon. ($1200 less your Subscriber discount of 25% until the first of the year.)

is not only more honorable,
but more useful
than a life spent doing nothing.
