    Kev
    So you should be pleased, I have always liked work........as you know but these last two busts are, IMHO, your best yet.
    Regarding the blood letting; personally I know that there would be floods but for my input less is more.
    Staying tuned commenced.
    Keith
    ps As for the wing nut think nothing of it, I have a trained eye to pick up such things.

    all the best

    Hi Keith

    Thanks for the comments glad that you like work ! ...lol

    Everyone is a leaning curve mate ..especially for me ...would like to paint up the Lassen bust as well as soon as I get it ...got a few ideas!

    Ref blood I tend to agree less is more not going for the soaked sleeve look as in the original artwork but more of a Jose Brito version esoecially with the sword itself ....wait and see ! ...

    ..all I know is it will be a heart in mouth session at the bench !..lol

    So glad your trained eye was in action ...I would have missed that ! ,

    Cheers and all the best

    I am sure that it is all in hand Kev, or in head at least.
    It may be an old cliche but I have seen your skills get nicely honed at an equal and opposite pace to mine deteriorating.
    Good health

    Hi Kev
    No we are back at home. We were loading the car yesterday and thought we may as well push of through the night. It was a beautiful drive over the Pyrenees to Andorra. Additionally it was cooler for the Hazzar. Sitting here it's 34 degrees, Hotter than we had in Spaln.
    Rabbit tweeking season is May 3rg to mid August.So you are OK
    Be good

    Jaysus! How did you do that watch face? I don't think I've got a brush small enough!
