    My latest completed project is this wonderful bust from Pegaso. Those that have been following his progress on my blog know that I challenged myself to paint the armor using NO metallic paint. To that end, a lot of time went in to getting the light and shadow spectrum just the way I wanted. In the end I am quite happy with the results. The black faded wool cloak was also a fun bit of challenge due to the sheer amount of tonal values required. Really enjoyed and recommend this kit.

    All oils Jim? I think that's your fave medium of choice but curious about the NMM armour.

    Colin I've been painting in oils for over thirty years so why change now (old dog you know). Curious about the armor, how? or why?

    Jim - I would have thought NMM mail would have been easier in acrylic. I think oils would be a lot more challenging due to the blending....unless you have a lot of time and patience. Anyway it looks great.

    God I love that quote Ron!!

    Yes I do love my oils and yes, acrylics are quicker. I have learned how to work with the oils as my preferred medium and I have adapted a number of acrylic style skills to that medium. It does take longer but not as long as you might think and I tend to work on more than one piece at a time to avoid not being able to work on anything. The oils are layered and the overnight drying time allows me to contemplate my next move.
