    Hi,
    a few days ago I returned to take the canvas and oils that
    were still more or less 20 years, decided to apply this bust that had to paint,
    and by now is well, hope you enjoy
    all criticisms are welcome

    What a wonderful paint job. The skin tones are perfect. Did you use a pencil to draw his mustache? It looks scribbled on.. :D

    Excellent start Fernando, like what you have done for starters, doesn't look like a bust to me though, what scale ?? Look forward to further progress.

    No, I used cobalt blue to darken a little more of the area before the last light mustache

    Thanks for the side views, looks very good so far.

    The detail in the badge looks very neat, and the hair is very good - matches the skin tones of someone who has been in the sun for many years.

    Looking forward to more

    Cheers

    Well Done!
    Yep, looks like the kind of camouflage uniform worn in the African continent.
    Nicely finished, details well executed.

    Thanks for sharing

    Fernando,

    Great painting, is the bust a sculpt you did yourself or is it commercial.?

    Project which I create the various arms of the Portuguese forces, Army, Air Force, Navy, including the special forces, this is one "commands."
