    Looks just fine so far. It's a little hard to see the contrasts and highlights you have applied due to the sun flooding out your workbench. It's obvious that they are there. Just a little hard to see. Try using a light placed overhead and snapping some pics then. A good, basic tutorial on photographing miniatures can be found here:


    Looking forward to seeing this completed (y)

    Hi Jim

    I am experimenting with the camera at the moment and trying to take photo's without
    extra lighting and just experimenting with exposures

    Hello Ronald
    I totally agree with other friends for the photo perhaps beginning to put a background in gray or black!
    Why does your job look good in bright light from the lamps to dispel any details does this work!
    Because the truth is that even now after many experiments continue not doing so well in the photo!
    Experiment with your photographic machine and not flash!
    Well wait for the photo in your experiments with bust

    Whatever you want to ask me and I send my message!

    Hi Alexandros
    I didnt use flash just natural light, the bust had just been painted and was reflecting a
    lot ,but will try to take better photo's

    From what I can see from the photos this is coming along nicely,I like the tones in the flesh.

    Just how bad are the photo's David.
    Interested in the wet on dry you talked about but puzzled as how to blend this
    with the dry paint.

    Cheers Ronnie

    Exciting painting, Ronald! Look fwd to progress!

    With regrettably limited interest in some of the most popular periods including the one concerned, I confine my comments only to the shapes and colours side of things.

    It has to be said that this bust easily makes a happy owner, such is its lean execution. While sumptious texture is increasingly the focus for those who excel in this field / industry, this sculpt is a fond reminder of what can result when Insight meets Simplicity.
