    Hi Roc,

    your start looks very good. And I konw that napoleonic figures are long to paint.

    Your gold ornements look fantastic.
    Maybe you could have added in your mix a bit of gold printer ink, but not necessary.

    Jean Paul , merci beaucoup mon ami, I'm glad you like the way it turned out so far.

    I was going to add a little gold printers ink to the mixture, but I decided to do it exclusively in oils..

    Rocco,

    This is a wonderfull painting on that Chasseurs uniform. Napoleontic's are the most colorfull uniforms.
    You done a great job on that golden lace's, extremely well done.

    Roc,
    C'était bien ce que je pensais aussi. La silhouette resemble beaucoup à mon hussard de Poste Militaire.
    Can't wait to see the finished figure.
