    Hello Guys,

    I finished yesterday evening my painting of the beautifull figure Jean Le Bon.
    He was King of France and lived from 1319-1364.
    It was a great pleasure to paint him with the smell of oilpaint ;)

    So let me hear what you think of it.

    Thanks Keith,

    I've tryde closer pics but they are always blur. I think my camera cannot handle to close.
    Sorry for that.

    This figure just draws your eye right in.

    "It was a great pleasure to paint him with the smell of oilpaint."

    I was tempted to chuck the oils a couple years back. They just seem to have a place that nothing else can fill.

    Marc,
    nice stuff! He looks to have turned out well! Do you have a Macro mode on your camera? It is a mode that allows closer focus when you want more detail. It is usually a setting represented by a small flower icon on the camera. Dig around a bit I bet you find it! Also, if you are not using a flash, which it looks like you are not (good job!) the camera tends to let the aperture stay open a long time. This causes bluriness due to movement. See if you can force the aperture settings to a higher speed to steady your shot. You may have to light it a bit more, but it usually solves the issue. Keep up the good work!
