Civil War Painting's my Civil War painting.  I love parts of it, other parts I just want to start over. I used two different kinds of paint: water soluble oils and acrylics.  The oils gave me more than a few fits!

I did photograph some of my steps.  Here's what I have:

Sketched, base coated and blocked in.
Hair, skin, shading and a few details.
Little better, still much missing.
No smoke, yet.  I never really liked the foliage.
Smoke added, but still not crazy about the foliage.  SO, I "fixed" it below.
I still don't know!
