    Dave,
    nicely done indeed! A virtual "gold" medal from me. He is a study in red...from his beard to his uniform. Nice stuff for sure!

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for the compliments, its always a pleasure after you have worked hard to get something right.

    Hi Kevin

    a little pointer on this bust, make sure you dry fit the head to the torso as you need to add a little putty around the bottom edge of the collar, other than that no other problems, in fact it is a beautifully cast bust. As I paint in mainly acrylics I can only give you the basic colours of the The Jacket and Sash, they were painted both in Andrea basic red, with very light washes of Blue/Black oil paint over the sash to give a more crimson look, and shadows on the jacket from Andrea dark red. the hair is a different matter altogether. that is the colour basic flesh from Vellajo, then several thin washes of Burnt Sienna oil paint untill I got the desired tone. I hope this helps
