    I have sometimes taken this nice old man before and I'm so at the 60% limit.

    Unfortunately, he shines very, no idea why?

    Cheers

    Hendryk a great start and I like your choice of colours. In regard to the shine, I'm not a painter but I've heard Testors Dullcoat works.

    Cheers Ken

    Hello Ken

    thanks for your comment.
    I paint with oil and i think, the problem is a new glas of thinner.

    Nice start.
    Hendryk if you want avoid shine: Let the oil out on a indexcard or something similar.
    Then the paint on your palette and for painting I use white spirit for thinning sometimes liquid from W&N
