    Have finally managed to complete this latest piece which represents Piper Kenneth McKay of the 79th Cameron highlanders at Waterloo.
    Due to my father being terminally ill,this piece had to be placed aside for a while,but I managed to get back to it a couple of weeks ago and have now finally finished,I’m reasonably happy with the outcome and it was a very enjoyable piece to paint.
    The bust is produced by Graham Scolick at CGS militaryfigures and is beautifully sculpted by Carl Reid.

    It’s been a very difficult time and I’d like to dedicate this piece to him.

    Hi Brian

    All our thoughts are with you mate at this very difficult time and a wonderful thing to dedicate to your father

    The painting is easily recognised as your artwork , distinctive as I've said before

    There certainly looks a lot to paint and organisor the way it is painted

    You have done a fine job on this doing yourself and the sculpt credit

    Particularly like the tartan

    Why not enter a piece into the class of your choice in the new FOTM

    Happy benchtime
