    Started this figure last Sunday.
    As i'm aware of my improveble painting i will post WIP pictures. I hope you all can give some positive critism to improve.

    This is what i did last sunday after cleaning and priming.
    First lay in the underlayer with acrylic.

    Yesterday evening i have another painting session and took again some pictures.
    I promised myself to work on the small parts with acrylic, to start again with try and error on the acrylic paint. So only the red is finished ( i think) with acrylic.
    Bronse has get the basic layer and is done in oils. It is a mix with bronze and sepia (W&N) Because it is almost impossible to blend wet in wet into the bronze i think i gonna do the shading and highlighting this evening.
    The cape has get his first layer of a mix with sepia and white.
    Maybe i gonna mix some yellow ochre in it for a more warm color the second layer. After drying i gonna shade and highlight for white.
    May i have your opinion.....

    Hi Marc,

    You've made a very promising start mate, and its good to see you're using both oils and acrylics for different purposes. Well done. I'll be following your progress with interest.

    No, it is just oilpaint.
    I mixed bronze from Windsor & Newton with Sepia from Windsor and Newton.
