    Just about finished this one .
    An impulse buy at a bargain price, funds went to the widow of a unknown modeller with good taste in figures.
    All in oils as usual

    Ron a great rendition of great grandad Tamburrini; I can see him thinking "I think I go Glasgow now!" Looking forward to seeing you and your great grandad soon.

    PS Your little man who makes the bases knows his stuff.

    Looks much better in the photo than it does in the 'flesh' ;)
    Actually this is a smashing piece with some lovely shading throughout.
    For some reason I've got a notion for a cuppa?????

    Cad red is the base ,shaded with a mix of the base and brown madder, Vermillion for the highlights but not two much or you end up with a very British red aka the Zulu war uniforms . "Take note Richie" :)

    Thanks Ron, *******'s! I don't have Brown Madder or Vermillion and I was in the art shop in Darlington yesterday, I'll have a look and see if they have them in the little shop here in Bedale but there's quite a few missing from their range.

    Roger just checked the tube it's Cad Red Scarlet for the highlights " whata mistaka to make'a
    Ps it's a series 4 tube W/N so carries a hefty price tag but mine is about 20 years or so old "you don't need much"

    Very nice Mr T. A pleasant change from the usual range of subjects. Base works well to set him off.

    Cheers
