    A more colourful bust this time and one of the busts I purchased at Bugle Call.

    I painted the eyes last evening so after shopping this morning I started painting the head flesh in my usual Artist's oils.

    Thank you Paul, Oh yes I need my sleep but I have a lovely understanding wife who doesn't mind me up in The Hanger as long as jobs are done and the late afternoons and evenings are us times.
    A face usually, after the eyes are done, takes me a couple of hours using Artist's Oils. I don't know how long it would take with acrylic?

    Cheers

    I had to do a bit more yesterday late evening so hair and headdress base painted and this morning base painted the tunic lacing and tunic colour.

    The tunic is more blue in the flesh, pic shows it too light.

    That's at for now, eyes have given up so food and drink and a rest needed.

    Catch you later

    Many thanks Nap, super sculpting on the head certainly helps, I still have to add some highlighting to the lace work and some touching up. the blue I had to do a mix but think it looks right with some ref. I found.

    Cheers

    Apart from a bit of touching up that I have noticed in the pics he is finished.

    I used lead wire for the shako cords as I couldn't get on with the supplied multi-strand wire which I found rather stiff, but pleased with the end result.
