    Hi everyone,

    Just finished this excellent figure sculpted by Maurizio Bruno. Painted as usual in acrylics. It's based on a contemporary portrait of Chef d'escadron Raveneau of the 14th Chasseurs so I thought I'd paint it as such, rather than follow the box art. (The instructions give painting options for Raveneau.) It was a change to paint a figure wearing orange anyway - not an easy colour to get looking right. I've attached an illustration of Raveneau which is based on the original portrait.

    Hope you like it.

    Edward

    Very nice, is the first piece of my sculpture I see painting as well, when I realized that I have followed the subject was in fact Colonel Ravenau ..... but then decided that a pair of red pants, they would have more effect photo ha ha ha ......

    Congratulations on a really good interpretation. :)

    Cheers MAB

    Many thanks all.

    Piet - the illustration comes from Joseph Margerand's "Les Coiffures de L'Armée Française". I have seen a black and white copy of the original portrait but I can't remember which book it was in..
