    Hello guys, it's been a while since I was active on the site but I won't bore you with family and health related issues today.
    Recently I picked up figure/bust painting and this came out of the brushes.
    The bust was first painted in enamels and finished in oils.
    I hope you like it, and please tell me what can be done better, thank you.
    Best regards,
    Guy

    Thank you guys, very much appreciated. The bust is pretty old but so much fun to paint. I think the sculptor did a fantastic job on it.

    Btw guys, completely forgot to mention that the pics were taken in blueish daylight, which seem to have altered the colours. The photo below shows the colours as they are.
