    Hi Bob

    Nice to have you catching up , couldn't resist the avatar ...trouble is I keep licking my iPad screen now ...lol

    Thanks for comments ref horse , perhaps a dapple would have been more impressive but that's life !

    Update ...all spots redone less the rear of saddle area ...then just endings in green , mane and then his face ...once this is done fit the pelisse, sabretache, sword ...and it will be done

    Next will be French Mary ...no horse

    Nap, Looking good!(y) Will have to admit, you have undertaken a very adventuresome feat. Creating and Painting a Chasseur no less and his mount in bust format. Awesome, simply awesome! Can't wait to see this one completed. So wish I could see it in person at our Atlanta Show in a few weeks here in Atlanta, GA.
