Louvin Brothers

I hate practicing and usually jump right into whatever I’m doing, but in this case I thought a practice piece might be prudent. These are process pictures for the Louvin Brothers portrait and they’re looking pretty good so far, but the real test will be stitching them. The stitching will either take it over the top or ruin it.

Here I’m starting to layer in the leather pieces

Still layering in pieces

I squealed when I turned it over and saw this!

OK, now it’s really looking good, and I’m nervous about stitching it.

    Paul Krause told me to just go slow because nobody will know how long it took, just how good it looks😇
