This is a move from the horse SBS to a WIP now
Horse and sheepskin shabraque plus ground work done
Looks marvellous Ron - it almost a shame to out the rider on this horse!
Cheers Huw , hope to get this guy finished in time for ingolstadt , top half of the body is almost done and the head and face are finished but it will be a near run thing
I'm sure you'll do it. Can't wait to see it in the flesh.
Thats a beauty Ron, very nice work on the horse. Can't wait for the completion.
Gorgeous horse and froundwork Ron. Can't wait to see the rider in place.
Thanx Bob , Colin
lovely painting !
Don't know how you do it Ron, I know you have explained but they just seem to come to life.
As for the Sheep skin looks soft enough to touch.
Hi Mick thanx for the kind coments .
It has been somewhere around 25 years since I painted a sheepskin the last time was on the Poste Militaire mounted Dragoon by Ray lamb
I have included an update pic here as I was not happy with the contrast between the wolves toothing and the fleece , so a little darker lining was added.
Also some more shading with a mixture of Titanium white and Lamp Black which gave me a nice grey with a slightly mauve tint .
The digi camera has blasted a lot of this extra work out ; so the contrast is a bit more than you can see in the pic
Ron this horse is a beauty and so is the groundwork.
I really like the tones around the mouth and nostrils.
I can't wait to see the rider...but I shall have to.
Lovely piece Ron.
looking really good.
Pushed this on a bit , but still lots to do to the trooper.
Pushed it on! You're not kidding Ron.
It looks great and it's giving me the urge to paint something Napoleonic (the first one ) myself.
Very nice, Ron, I like a lot your colors, transitions and fine details.
