    I never strip a figure especially a bust.I just paint over it with oils.

    Once I'd photographed it I thought it was a bit too much like my usual tones .I've get a bit bored with the same as usual.I really would like to experiment more the older I get

    Thanks for your kind comments Alexandros,coming from a painter of your high calibre i take what you say as a great compliment.
    Ive started to slowly do more work on the Blacksmith's head such as changing his hair colour and using stains of oils to add more life to his face.I've also attached the head to the body which gives me more of a perspective of the whole bust.

    You have no idea Steve :rolleyes: Brian paints things within a minuscule of finishing gets piss off with them and chucks them in the recycle bin :facepalm:
    The price of perfection is high :)

    Starting adding stains of oil on the face and reworking the hair and beard which you'll notice is still wet.

    I still much prefer the smithy's face in the flesh but unfortunately I'm still crap at photography as the picture doesn't really give you a true likeness but at least you can get a rough idea.
