Copper Copper

Copper Copper---- oil on masonite -----approx. 8" x 10"

Small painting of an even smaller toy police officer with befitting metallic finish. The actual little toy was blue, suitable as well, but shiny things fascinate me and I wanted to try to make it look copper. I hope it comes across as such...this is the first time I have ever had to attempt to capture the look of copper, and wasn’t too sure I could, hence the small format. I figured a smaller size would be easier to throw across the studio if it didn’t cooperate.

Thanks M..I think it turned out ok. I wish I would have tried it a little larger now. The tiny size ended up being more frustrating than the copper.
