Colt 45 M1911 Oil Painting

45 caliber














I really enjoyed painting this mostly because of the challenge. I have never painted anything like wood grain before so this forced me pay attention to all those little details and tones. This is a painting of a real gun I have that my father recently handed down to me. It originally belonged to his father who was in WWII. It is a Colt 45 M1911. I have not shot this gun yet, although I've shot one like it and has quite a kick! Not as much of a kick as the remington 870 shotgun though, now that has some power! My shoulder was sore for days afterwards.
