Colt 12

9" x 12" Oil on canvas - in progress

Texas QB Colt McCoy was one of the three finalist for this year Heisman Trophy. He was selected the 2008 AP Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year. McCoy set school records for most career touchdown passes, most touchdown passes in a season, most total touchdowns by a Texas player, most career wins, and most career passing yards.

Can you think of a more perfect name for a Texas quarterback than Colt McCoy? I have included both the sketch on canvas and the monochrome under painting. I will post each stage of the process and hopefully we will end up with a great oil painting. Actually I'll settle for good at this point since I am still learning how to push the medium around.
