    This is my first attempt at using acrylics for the skin. I wanted it to look pale due to the bitter cold in the Ardennes in 1944. I am working on a new base as the provided base is boring. The camo painting is a mixture of enamel and acrylic. Let me know what you think, good or bad!

    Guy, you are very kind! Coming from you it is an enormous compliment, but tell me how I can improve. I still feel much more comfortable with oils and enamels than acryilics.

    The first question that comes to mind after reading your above post is........why switch if you're more comfortable with oils and enamels? I switched to acrylics years ago and believe me..........I went back to my oils and enamels.

    Looking back at the 4 photos I think you need to add some snow........make the environment look cold......and the figure will follow.

    I think snow and a bit more contrast to the fleshtones and you have a winner
