Man In Uniform

Guarding The Palace, 6 x 12" oil on panel, ©2012, Fay Terry

This is my first painting of a person in uniform. The full uniform of the Queen's Guards is something I  knew little about. The tall cap weighs  one and a half pounds and is made from Canadian black bearskin. The search for a synthetic substitute has not yielded a suitable alternative. I was drawn to the photo my daughter Caitlin took recently and she graciously let me use it.
 London will soon embrace the Olympics and many of us will be watching the events. It will be fun to cheer on Team USA!
