Re: TUTORIAL - Re-painting Bean's Coastal Blacks & Mallards In reply to
STEVE, what a great reference . I wanted to try my hand at painting 2 of my Al McCormick Humpbacks as hen mallards. I have them primed and ready for 2 years now. I wanted to put more then bayman style detail into them and paint individual feathers. Problem is I have no experience with that level of detail so I've been a little gunshy about starting. These decoys would still be used for gunning and I know they would see some rough duty and I also know that from any distance at all most detail is lost. Steve your repaints have wonderfully captured a nice compromise and I'm amazed not only how beautiful they are up close but how well they represent the live birds. Outstanding work and you've inspired me to take on the task with your methods and I hope the results for me are half as good. Pete
