    Bloody hell Brian,
    thats some painting and then some. I love the wood effect on the musket,.(I'm sure you did an SBS but I missed it).
    These will look incredible, when they are all together.
    Best regards
    Bob

    Looking great.
    I know you use oil's and one thing I would like to know is.how do you go about the weathering?.
    Do you paint the main colour with shade and highlight's then weather on top of that?

    Hello Brian:
    One of the things that I've noticed about your figure work,
    regarding historical figures is that you paint the figure implying
    that this soldier has seen combat, and has been in the thick of it.
    I admire that so much about the way you paint the face, the
    uniform, the equipment belts, et cetera. Your work has the
    atmosphere, drama, and tension of what combat might have
    been like. I was in the US Army but I never saw combat. So
    I use the term "might have been like". . . as I do not personally
    know. But my imagination tells me, you have the feel for it.
    Regardless, this is really first class work, Brian. And the
    photographs are first rate as well. The Miami Jayhawk

    Painting is brilliant and the weathering outstanding. I echo the call for an SBS. Please!
