    Hello again!

    You do wonders with the scenery in this scene. The white clothing could be better with softer feathered shadows in more tones?

    Cheers

    Hi All,

    Thanks for the above. Yep, the white costume could have been toned down further but this was done some time ago and I was still conservative with the shading.

    Hi Marc,

    Everbody likes the flowers. Perhaps I should have posted this on a floral arrangement website...:).
    Simple notes on the figure for the costume buffs - Ref: Knotel Uniforms. 18th Ligne was one of several regts selected to be dress in white with different coloured facings since there was shortage of blue dye imposed by the British blockade. Short-lived expt as after a battle, Napoleon didn't appreciate the look of blood on white and ordered all to be dressed once again in blue.
