    I have recently finished painting this excellent bust by Alexandros Models of Lord Nelson.
    I have painted the bust in Jo Sonja acrylics and Andrea acrylics. http://www.alexandrosmodels.com/busts

    John, that is an awesome piece of work, very subtle and lifelike fleshtones. I believe we met at Euro Miniature Expo last year where we had a chat when you were packing up your figures. All your work is of an extremely high standard and is an inspiration to all.

    John, I mean no disrespect to the artist who painted the box art, but your piece deserves to be on the box. I believe yours is the definitive version of this bust for me. Words fail me. All I can do is request permission to yell “BRAVO “ in an annoyingly loud voice.
    BRAVO

    Beautiful work John, the flesh tones and eyes are superb. Just shows what can be achieved by acrylics in the right hands.

    Words fail me John! This is by far the best Nelson bust I have ever seen. It is so realistic as to be a little spooky. :)

    Well done sir! (y)(y)(y)

    John, that is both humbling and inspirational. That is simply one of the finest exemplars of the painted miniature I have seen.
