    I've started this little chap.. another one to join the ranks of the started.
    This one is a bit of an experiment in technique. At the moment it's just blocked in with acrylics, further work will be done with oils.

    Thanks Carl, yes I have. This was a freebie I decided to try oils over acrylics on.

    I'm struggling a bit with them on small scale flats but with a bit of practice I might just get there. I can't see me going back to acrylics on flats apart from the Leuthen set that is started with them, I'll have to finish it off using them for consistency's sake.
