Pants and more background
I continued to slowly work out the tundra, softening the appearance of the grasses. I added some spruce to the foothills and worked on the dancer's pants. I also put soles on the mukluks. I hadn't decided on exactly what kind of hat I wanted him to wear, other than I wanted it to be ermine. Ermine are the same animal as a common brown weasel (stoat), only the coat turns a pure, clean white in winter from it's camouflaged brown in summer.
