    Hi Gary, thanks for your kind coments,as for the hair, I've listed the mixes below mate, Gary I sent out to block the colours in and not to try and paint the hairs individually,i feel this way it gives it a better result.

    Basecoat - Any Acrylic sand colour.
    Shadow areas of the hair - Oils - yellow ochre + tiny amount of burnt umber - Lay this onto the lowest value areas
    Medium areas of the hair - Oils - Yellow ochre + tiny amount of Naples yellow - Lay this onto the medium value areas and blend into lowest value area
    Light areas of the hair - Oils - Yellow ochre + tiny amount of Naples yellow + Titanium white - Lay this onto the highest value areas and blend into the medium value areas.

    Leave to dry 24hrs

    Add a mix of Naples yellow + Titanium white to the really high points and blend into the Highest value areas, just keep working it until you're satisfied with the result, if you lose some of your shadow or medium shadow then just go back in and touch it up.

    Brian

    Many thanks Keith for your kind comments, believe me Keith I am human, and there's been plenty of times I've cocked up in the past, however as I've got older I just take my time now with one piece at a time, I used to try and paint 2 or 3 things together many years ago, it takes me longer now but I enjoy it that way :happy:
