    Hi John,

    Great to see another finished piece from you & even better to see it's one of Phil's creations. Like the flesh tone you've achieved with acrylics plus photos really show this guy off.

    Trust things have started to settle down, though 10000+ shakes has got to wear you down.

    Stay safe & thoughts with you all.

    Great and natural looking fleshtones, John. The simulated sweat is a nice extra.

    Hi John, very nice work on this bust. Love the sweat beads, although I'd like to see maybe more sweat stains around the hat band perhaps, unless the pics dont show this up? cheers Les
