    Hello guys,

    I'm sharing some of my paintjobs that I have finished a little while back.
    It's a very nice bust from Michael Miniatures. All is painted in oils.
    I hope you like it. Thanks for looking,

    Eddy

    Thank you very much for the kind comments on my work, guys!:)
    I really appreciate it!

    Gerry:
    I use a mixture of Brown Madder and English red from Winsor en Newton (30-70%)
    Then my first highlight is lightly done with ocher, than Naples yellow, than Naples yellow added some white.
    The darkest shadows are done with Brown Madder and a little bit of purple.
    The cheeks are done added some burned sienna, an a little bit of red.
    All carefully blend together.
    Beside the nose I have added carefully some burned sienna.
    All was done whet on whet. (The face was done in about one hour).

    Nap:
    The cords and flounders are NMM.

    Thanks for looking and making the comments, guys
    Cheers,
    Eddy

    I've tried your mix Eddy, all I can say is I need more practice, you make it sound so B****Y easy:rolleyes::LOL: A question! when do you do the eyes? at the same time?

    Joking aside that is a stunning piece of work Eddy, great colours and a superbly painted face.

    Following our conversation at Euro I hope things are going well for you and my best wishes for Xmas and the New Year..................Keith

    Thanks you very much, guys! Much appreciated!:)

    Hi Keith: the eyes I do when the face is completely dry.

    For the moment, all is going well, I keep my fingers crossed that it stays that way, thanks for asking, my friend!
    My best wishes for Xmas and the new year for you too, mate!
    Cheers,
