    It's a nice bust with a lot of characters. I've seen a photo which
    this bust seems to be based on. Great job capturing the look of the
    old vet in the picture!

    Hi,Paul, Matthew and Christos.Many thanks guys for the kind words on the bust.Paul all of the bust is shadowed and highlighted with various mixes of Vallego acrylic .I use very thin glazes,building up the the different shadows and highlights ,of which gives a very soft effect.Kind regards John:)
