Sketches in the Old Poland tradition

I have been quite busy these last four weeks, amongst other things trying to adjust to new developments around us, so instead of writing a lengthier post I am simply going to share with you some of my sketches-in-progress (of old and new drawings) I have been playing with using updated GIMP. Digital image manipulation allows for working on the same image over and over creating many versions so I am showing here one image that I have  four versions already...

... Porucznik1


... warrior who will eventually hold a long sword a la Skienkiewicz's Podbipieta

... winged hussar theme

.. winged hussars circa 1683

... Dragonensign with the musicians of mid-XVIIc

.. retainer with a horse, long firearm holster arranged in the same fashion as on the hetman Zolkiewski coffin.

well, lots of work to be done yet , so please enjoy the work-in-progress images
on Sept.12 we had another anniversary of the Jan III Sobieski victory over the Ottoman army at Vienna A.D. 1683
