    Here's my version of this classic Andrea Bust.
    I love the deep wrinkles in his face and the tattered leather tunic. It captures the look of a war-weary veteran Men at Arms from the Crusades.

    Painted in oils over Jo Sonja acrylics.

    The burr elm base is a bust plinth from Planet Figure's own Ron Tamburinni.

    Hope you like him :happy:

    Great job on this Tony. You've got the 'look' just right.
    Considering the criticism this got when Andrea launched it it's amazing how many really good painters have produced really good versions.
    Yours adds to the list.
    Cheers

    Ronnie can't have much of the Burr Elm from his Grans coffin left, still it's nice to know she's seeing a bit of the world :happy:

    Hi guys,

    Thanks very much for your comments, they are greatly appreciated as always.

    Brian, yes I sleep but perhaps not as much as I should. Too many figures and not enough time, I'm sure you understand!

    Hi Wayne, the leather belt was undercoated with Jo Sonja's Gold Oxide and then I feathered the edges with Flesh Tone and Provincial Beige. I then applied several thin washes of Burnt Seinna oil paint diluted in white spirits. When those washes were dry, I then did a few touch ups with acrylics and added some very fine lines to illustrate the folds and creases in the leather. I then finished with another thin wash of Raw Umber oils to emphasise the folds and creases in the leather and to deepen the shaded areas. I hope that helps.

    Not familier with Jo Sonja's paints, but will shoot for what you did with what I have.
    Again, very nice work and I see you are continualy improving.............Wayne

    Hi Tony
    Just got over the jet lag and getting used to the 97 deg temp and managed to log on with my IPad

    This looks superb and I wonder where all the critique came about this bust as it is a delight to paint.

    Great job all round

    Great work Tony.
    I really like the depth of colour and realistic textures that you achieve with oils.
    Well done mate, it's a winner.
    Cheers,
