    Into the final stages now with this latest bust,ive added some beige colouring to the webbing with some seam lines added in,these just need reefing a little which ill do once the oils have dried off,the binoculars ive finished and added in place and I have added the camo flashes which are prominent on the Denison smocks,one more session should finish this one off,4 down and 1 to go :eek::nailbiting:

    The colours I have used for the Denison were all finished in oils over acrylic basecoats.

    Gold Ochre + White
    Olive Green + 10% Windsor yellow + white
    Light Red + Vandyke brown + white as required

    Lining was done using acrylic black thinned down.

    Beautiful work Brian. What kind of wash did you use to obtain that fantastic finish on the denison. Was it a mix of colors?

    I don't use washes on any figure painting I do,
    I think you may be thinking about the picture itself,I edited the picture with a program I have on my PC to give it that look

    Cheers Brian. You're also a brave man for staying the course in doing 5 of the same subject. Wow, I've got the attention span of a hummingbird:D:cool:

    Brian,

    What can I do to get the figure to look like your picture, using paint?

    Hi mate
    Paint in your usual style Joel and try different techniques when loading your pictures,there's quite a few different programs available.

    Hi,
    Perhaps I did not explain well enough what I'm trying to do. I'm not trying to get a picture looking like yours, I want the painting of the figure to look like your picture. Should I spray a matt finish on the figure?

    I can't advise you as I don't use varnish either on my subjects,you will just have to go with what you think is best,have you got a picture of your piece

    From a mathematical point of view, the Denison is the dog's spheres.jpg
