    Hi Kev, just caught up with this thread, I love this style of sculpting and the painting is well up to your usual standard the horse's face is so full of life. So, well done on the painting, and well done Andy on the sculpt(y)(y)(y).
    Best wishes, Gary.

    PS What with Mark's double entendres and the HORRIBLE image of Nap hanging off the back of a Tesco trolley in stockings and a nurses uniform.... wweeellll:LOL:

    Kevin, My friend this is looking a bit special Mate.
    I think that you are really showing off now with your super skill at painting leathers of various shades..........Just a tad envious or plain jealous.
    Eagerly awaiting the post that shows the trooper reunited with his mount.
    Super work on the additions and painting.
    All the best,
    Keith

    I am nearly all leathered out...DEFINATELY not showing off!

    The horse is trotting around the Paddock Keith

    Fair Dinkum as they say

    Still confused about a title though!.....was going to call it "Spirit"of the Light Horse ...

    Thanks for looking in

    Hi Kevin,
    Mate just pulling your leg on the leather painting front ref showing off........should have put showboating:cautious:
    Mute point; If you call it Spirit of the Light Horse you will need to change the apple to a bottle of Whisky or such like.;)
