Mick’s Mick’s Sgt Maj. CA Burt

    This is a piece I finished before Christmas from Mick’s Mick’s. It was the subject of a WIP thread but I never got round to posting any pictures of the completed project although I did take the finished article to the White Rose Christmas bash so apologies to those members who saw it there. It’s a super bust of Sgt Major CA Burt, Irish Guards and was a really enjoyable project to have a go at. As I commented on previously, the sculpting and casting is superb and there are some great details, particularly on the flags.
    Painted in oils over enamels and any comments/critique are welcome.

    "Any critics are welcome" ..... well, bad news...there is no way there's any critic possible on this. Superb painting. The flags are breathtaking. How do you get the lines so sharp. Great highlights and shadows. This is a level only a few will ever reach!!!

    Thanks for the comments Hans, it is really appreciated. The detail on the flags is excellent and the different sections of stripes etc are raised so this really helped when trying to get straight lines.

    Absolutely, totally superb painting.

    I reckon this is the best painting of 2019 thus far, and will take some beating.
