    Another one finished, a Major of 1st Skinner's Horse in drill order 1907, a 75mm resin figure from Atelier Maket with some small errors corrected.

    Hi Pierre,
    I do like a bit of the old Raj.
    I do like the work you have done on the turban and the mustard yellow has come out a treat.
    Well done.

    A really nice job mate, yellow can be really tricky to paint. Lovely work on the turban band.

    Thank you Kevin!
    Undercoat in one of the sandy Humbrols, can't remember which 62 or 63. Then in oils W&N Gold Ochre darkened with a spot of Burnt Umber,the first highlights in the fresh with W&N Naples Yellow Dark. When dry more highlights with NYD and extra touch up on pockets etc. in Naples Yellow Light. Usually I finish with highlighting 'wet on dry' and finely 'feathering out' to blend the whole thing, because in the past because of my job I rarely had the time to finish something in one sitting. Now retired I keep to the same method.
    Cheers,
    Pierre
