Santos Has a Face!

I had a few hours today to work on both the wings
and the facial features of this Santos.
He is a bit more whimsical in expression than I anticipated...
Whimsy is good, right?

I finally pinned those lower arms at the elbows... 
mostly out of sheer frustration; 
because they kept falling off every time I moved him!
I took the pic with our ceiling fan light on... offering some back-lighting.
The effect is so ethereal and... well, angelic! 
Using a palate knife, I added some paper clay to his wooden wings,
creating a bit more texture and interest.
