    With painting the back of the head and neck today ends my "head-work".

    This point I am aware lifted until last, because all painted "segments" meet and must be "painted together" ...:

    And so it has become ...:

    Here again the whole "paint box" that was used for the head ...:

    Now the head comes into cabinet - and will brought out for the assembly at the end of the project again ...

    And now Ivan Sirko and I wish You beautiful Christmas days!

    On this bench I will continue in the new year with the torso ...

    Welcome to the new year and back on this workbench!

    Today I started with painting the torso of my Cossack bust.

    Initially there were some considerations of color ...:

    On most images of Ivan Sirko with redtones can be seen ...:

    [IMG]

    [IMG]

    The boxart of the Young-bust shows a lot of red ...:

    [IMG]

    Likewise, this is for all painted versions of this bust, which I have seen in various forums.

    A reason for me to look out for a different color - especially on the Repin-painting Ivan Sirko not much of a red bear ...:

    [IMG]

    This image of Ivan Sirko brought me finally to "green" ...:

    [IMG]

    So a very dark green it should be - there is "Tsarist Green " close!
    "Tsarist Green " was (and is again) so dark that the color looks at the first glance black..:

    [IMG]

    Here's an example of how dark the color looks:
    On the sleeve of a black leather jacket a notch green patch looks black at first glance ...:

    [IMG]

    Only when other lighting reveals the green ...:

    [IMG]

    This is the color of my caftan Ivan Sirko will get! But just "in scale", a tiny tick brighter ...

    After several attempts it has been found that a 3:1 mixture of "Extra Dark Green" and "Oxford Blue" is exactly the desired tone of the base color ...:

    [IMG]

    To darken the base color is added a little "German Grey" to ...:

    For the lights, however, the basic color is brightened with "German uniform," caused the highest lights, as I have added a small amount "Light Flesh"..:

    [IMG]

    After all these considerations, I've even chosen a spinal segment, and tried the whole thing ...:

    Today I tried the procedure for the tresses, which adorn the Kaftan of our Ataman.

    They should be golden!

    First is underpainted - with these colors ...:

    Then, carefully with ...

    …brushed to make it to the places where light falls, golden shimmers and shines not metallic.

    At least, I finished my collar back...:

    That's pretty cool how you paint in segments and still match the colors and tones so well.

    Thanks Joe und Steve!

    I can - for health reasons - paint only small parts of a figure, for that I use my "segment method".

    These "segment-painting" is not so difficult. I mix my colors on a white bathroom tile and let them dry after painting.

    After those rests I mix the tones the next day again. Important mixing ratios I note also.

    Cheers

    Amazing you can work like that Martin, have you tried a wet palette or does it not suit your style ? You certainly do well with it (y)

    Thanks Steve - I would often times use a wet palette, but I fall more back to my old method ...
