    OK guys and gals, I haven't posted up a finished piece in quite some time. I have been busy on a very large scale project and have been holding out to post any progress on it until I get a bit further along, or get better pics (more on that in just a bit). I have taken a little break from that big ol' project to do a couple historical projects. One is the box art for this little gem, a new release from The Lost Battalion sculpted by the tallented Mr. Shane Tarry. It's a Revolutionary War Continental soldier. It has a nice sort of "every-man" look to it, and the hat, fringed hunting shirt and face were a joy to paint. He is perfectly cast in 2 pieces of off-white resin (the hat is a seperate piece). Hope you like him. The hunting shirt should provide several opportunities for color. I tried to get a look of "sweat lines" on the hat near the band area to give it a more worn look (hope you can tell). This was nice straight forward paint! Scott over at TLB should have him ready for the Atlanta show, hit him up for your copy when you're there! Thanks for looking, any and all comments are welcomed.

    Hi Jay,

    A lovely bust from TLB. I particularly like the sculpted fringe details on the hunting shirt. Another great paint job mate.

    Tony, Nap thanks gents!

    Nap, for the shirt, if I remember correctly, the mix is yellow ochre, T. white, raw umber and just the slightest little touch of cad. red medium (tip of the brush just dabbed in the paint!) to warm the color just slightly. Believe it or not, it's actually my flesh mix in different amounts.

    For the hat I actually started with ivory black and I highlighted with white and a touch of yellow ochre. I wasn't happy with the results, so I started over right over the top of that (when it was dry) with a mix for my darkest shadows of raw umber and black. To that I added a touch of T. white and a tiny touch of yellow ochre. I think the brown shades did two things for me, it let me add much more depth of color and gave it a nicer faded/aged quality. Glad you like it! Thanks,
