    Hey Rocco,

    I'am glad you are awake from your wintersleep :lol:
    I like the rich colours you used.
    I have again a question. You painted a blue line on the pants. When i must paint a small line i always have (sometimes with one hear) not a straight line, but when the line is straight i screw up the colours next to the line.
    Did or didn't you not protect the red with something, and yes with what you protect it.

    Now i had to wait on the face sbs, because my returning to the oilcolours is great, but the face is a mess to do.

    Gary, thank you for kind words,you are too kind.
    I always leave the face for last, kind of a bad habit I picked up along the way.

    Keep up the great sculpting and I'm looking forward to your next project. ;)




    Cheers

    Hey Jason, thanks buddy, I really appreciate your encouragement.

    Lord Cardigan was indeed a strange chap, no doubt about that.

    Keep the good work.

    Marc, my dear friend, Thanks and I'm glad you are enjoying my step by step.

    Before I painted the blue stripes on the sides of trousers, I let the red dry completely for at least one week, than very carefully I painted the blue stripes, to keep it straight I used a clean damp brush to wipe excess on the sides.

    Marc, painting in oils takes a lot of patience, it is not difficult one you get the hang of it, oils produce very rewarding results, you are in control of your color mixtures.

    My advice to you is to practice..... And always ask questions, that's the way I learned.



    Cheers

    Roc,

    He is looking really nice and the colors are really vibrant. Looking forward to seeing you paint the face and bring it all together.

    Looking good Roc! I echo what has been said here about the colours, they are rich and vibrant, you know how to get the best colours out of your oil paints. What red did you use for the trousers ? ... They say the 11th Hussars had more like cherry red trousers, but in your photos they're more on the vermillion side?

    Hello Johan,Thanks for the kind words and your encouragement, I appreciate verty much.
    I used the following formula for the red trousers:

    Base= 1 part Cadmium red + 1 part Cadmium red deep.
    Highlight lights = Cadmium red.
    Extreme highlights= Cadmium scarlet.
    Medium Shadows= Cadmium red deep.
    extreme shadows= Purple.
