Revolution in Cairo, Part 3 - The Final! (NOT)

- click to enlarge -

(UPDATED - Not the Final - See above post)

Here's the finished painting... for now. Need to move on to other work. It's a bit looser stylistically than usual, but I'm cool with that. It think it captures the moment and that's all I wanted to do. Will probably tweak it here and there. Will re-post if any significant changes takes place.

May the sun shine on the people of Egypt in this uncertain hour. I hope their transition to a democracy is completed quickly and without bloodshed.

Interesting layout. It took a while for me to work out the action taking place here. The Soldier's face is perfectly comic, like he is just realizing its all over and he's about to be mobbed.

And yes, I agree, good luck Egypt
