    At the same time have been working in this one also in acrilycs.
    Only the reds and gold on the left side are worked (and the face).
    I would like to ask if the hair on the back shouldn’t be white (a wig) since he’s in full dress.
    Once more I’m eager to hear your comments.

    Cheers,

    Very good work.

    Generally white hair wasn't a wig, it was powdered. The powder was supposed to reduce lice etc. Most European armies of the C18 followed this "fashion" to some degree.
    There may have been wigs among the officers as they could afford them.

    The bust is a Verlinden piece, I believe.
