    Agree with Henk's comments ...if anything I think I might push the highs a little bit more on the ears ....he certainly looks dirty perhaps a little too much ...I wouldn't do it further

    Just my thoughts !!

    Look forward to more from your bench

    Happy benchtime

    I've decided: The head stays as it is - no brushstroke will be changed!

    The next stage that I tackle today is the "Gymnastiorka", the uniform blouse of our Towarisch Leitenant.

    And what was meant for the cap, that also applies to the uniforms of the Red Army: The colors of blouses and pants had an almost infinite variety - here is a small selection ...:

    [IMG]

    Even in the following black-and-white photo - it was taken in 1945 - you can clearly see how variegated the troupe came along ...:

    [IMG]

    I would like to have a color for my Gymnastiorka which is similar but not the same as that of the cap - and at the same time "calm", to create a good "background" for all the details Palo has sculpted so well.

    First, I exchanged the green of the cap for the quieter "juice green" and the skin color to lighten against "titanium white".

    I also added another color to the base color, namely "Sfumato Shade Gray". This shade of grey in particular makes the tone "calm" ...:

    [IMG]

    With this I have painted the front part of the collar and a part of the Gymnastiorka - the shadows are created by the gradual addition of "Burnt Umbra" - lightening by the cautious increase of the white part.

    Pure white alone was not used to avoid the effect of "chalkiness"!

    What do you think of the result ...?

    The color that I have mixed together for the Gymnsatiorka is to paint as hell, since it consists of so many different components!

    But I like it more and more with every brushstroke ...!

    So - I have placed a few punctual highlights on the gymnastika, the shadows slightly refined - and especially painted a shadow zone in the armpit / breast
    pocket ...:

    Sorry for today's image quality - but it's so dark outside that photos are only possible with "hard" artificial light, which is further complicated by the still shiny color ...

    I'm done with the front part of the gymnastics kait of our hero!

    Sleeve and back come next.

    And what I see there now, I am very satisfied from - because I got what I wanted:

    A color which, despite its clearly accentuated drapery (it is a matter of thin fabric!) Does not seem too restless, and thus gives a good "support surface" for the details.

    Pictures today at last without artificial lighting ...:

    The first sleeve - at least as far as I came today!

    What is still missing are a few targeted highlights. But outside, the fog hangs down to the ground - and under the light of my daylight limp glazes the fresh color, I'm just not sure where to put them...

    Hi Martin

    With arm done really bring the clothing together ....1 arm to do ....tommorow ?

    Looking at the cap against the uniform you've certainly achieved what you set out to do in being slightly different

    Thanks for sharing

    The sleeve looks paler and also a bit more neutral than the rest of the shirt. Is it on purpose, or an artefact from more and less cured oils? (It could of course just be my screen)
