    Hi.
    Did a bit of blocking in looking at colours etc

    I am happy with the colour of the bonnet. Just needs some shading on it.

    I will do the face tomorrow god help us.

    The Blue on the Collar I feel needs to be a little darker.

    I have Just painted a little area of tunic front & back to see how the French Gray appears. Not sure if it needs to be slightly more light blueish, or have the slightly light blueish as the highs, comments advice welcome.

    Looking good so far Mick. I’m keen to see how Ventress tackles this as that’s the preferred colour scheme for me at the mo (although there’s every chance I could change my mind!)

    A Little more.
    I have just blocked in the main colours, now to start tidying up the edges and make a start on the shading etc.
    This gives me an idea how the main colours go together.

    Coming along nicely Mick. Did you change the colour of the shawl or is it just the light on the photo?

    Thank You. No shawl still the same base colour. Vallejo French Mirage Blue 70900.

    Excellent painting Mick, looking very nice and has turned out well. I like the colour scheme and it will be good to see the next one in the alternative.

    Thanks Bob,
    With all the variations in colour I think we could give Rafferty's Motor Car a run for its money.
