Day 3 - Repainting the bullock mural Kurri

Above -This is how Bullock no 1's  face looked  when I started today.

  Above - This is where I had got to at the end of day 2. 
Today I mainly added brighter colour's to the main bullocks face - more flicks of red and a brighter yellow orange. By the end of the day I was happy with him viewed from the side of the road but further back he lacked a bit of impact. I'll leave his face until the end where I can see what needs to be done to have it suit the overall look.

Now 1st off I've added some reds and brighter yellow /orange  to his face and started to add the yellow colour to his right leg and body. The card table and step ladder give you an idea of his size.
Below - A closer view of his face.

Below - View at the end of the day. I've done a bit more of the second bullocks under painting and some of the logs. 
Boy you can see how much it's faded when you compare the logs- there are a few original one's that I still haven't repainted under the bottom of the man  . You can't even see them in the photo!

Their faces so far- I'm happy with his but may have to add some zap to have it look more like this from a distance. I'll leave him for the moment and continue the rest of the mural. Once it's done I'll come back and fine tune things if necessary.
