The Old Gray Man
Posted by Justinryan215 on Monday, October 5, 2020 7:09 AM

I call this one 'Smokey Mountain Memories'

I found this resin figure kit on etsy, and it reminded me of the song of the same name.  I just completed it after searching for an approriate doggo to match the lyrics of the song.

I used a mix of Vallejo Model Air and vallejo Model colors, mixed with Vallejo Glaze Medium, and washes from Army Painter

The wooden base is made from a solid block of spalted curly maple I processed from a tree my aunt had removed.

Thank you!  the song starts off "An old Gray man with a dog asleep at his fee, plays a worn out fiddle full of melodies"

 

I definitely feel I captured that feeling!
