Plague Doctors: The Cardinal
Figure two in series four.
I've dubbed him "The Cardinal". He doesn't have all of the classic colourings of the aforementioned bird, but the word comes to me every time I look at him.
I've wanted to paint one of those leather hoods bright red for a long time. Especially since I painted that one mask bright red. Makes me feel better now that I have it out of my system.
He has joined his brother in my Etsy shop. (Updated: he has been adopted. Thank you!)
I can't tell if the set of pictures (below) look like a mugshot collection or some sort of record album promo card. I just like how it turned out. He seems to be photogenic with a little dash of cool.
More to come!
