    The realism of your painting is outstanding.
    I'm truly 'gob- smacked'!
    I'll be coming back to look again, and again .... for many days.

    Cheers,

    Nice work Mike.
    I notice the shamrock on the side of the helmet
    Does that relate to any particular Regt or is it a Brigade / Division badge.

    Happy New Year guys! And thanks again to each of you for commenting.

    Andrew, Trying to use my painting efforts to make this look 'authentic' vs 'artistic'.
    Means he may not be as eye popping in colours or palette,
    however continue to push my own boundaries in this too.
    Pleased with how he has come along as won't be doing another bust for a while.

    Thank you to each one of you for commenting.
    I enjoy trying to do create authentic textures that help show how these guys would have looked.
    Have finished this fellow & will do final photos this week.
    Once approved by Paul will look at sharing some for your consideration.
    Really nice to know some of you are inspired by my art too.
    This week I get back into small pilots & Tommys.
    More on this in coming weeks.
