    Hi all,
    This is my latest work. The Mandan bust from Post Militaire, painted with acrylics as usual.
    Regards

    Excellent work - the gold in particular is toned down nicely and has a real feel to it.

    Superbly done. Every time I see this bust, I wonder why a British officer's head was/is not available. The pose and face would also do for an aristocratic officer!

    Nice! The red is well done and that is a lovely shade of yellow. The gold, though, is just outstanding. Would you mind sharing your technique/colors used?

    Thanks a lot for your comments!!!
    Red:
    I used several colors for the base but I don't recall the exact mix. I think it is not so important, I just look for a rich dark color.
    The colors I used are Vallejo's Hull red, cavalry brown, vermillion, a little green and Jo Sonja Indian red. For the lights just vermillion and some bright orange and sunny skin tone for the last steps,very controlled and dilluted. Shadows with hull red and indian red.Some filters were placed for more interest, with vermillion, scarlet and indian red.
    A photo of my base color (it is maybe a little darker than the photo)

    For the gold threads and epaulettes, I used flat brown, old gold and burnt umber.Lights with old gold, golden yellow and glossy white.Controlled washes were placed with browns and black.
    For the true metallic parts (buttons and horsesoe on the epaulettes) I used printes inks and oils.
