    Hey Guys,I don't know much about politics and personally I don't like it ; Therefore,I will leave politics to the politicians. :lol: :lol:

    I choose to go on painting and sharing it with all you nice people.

    I finally got around to painting the legs and feet .
    Advice and critique is certainly welcome.

    Kenneth, my friend, thanks for the ecouragement much appreciated.

    I really haven't painted the sandels yet, what you see is a very weak undercoat of apple barrell acrylic.

    I will paint the sandels in oils over the weekend and I'll post some pictures.

    the following is the formula that I will be using.

    Sandels.

    Undercoated with Apple Barrel acrylic Burnt Umber,

    1 - Base= Mars brown + Alizzarin brown.

    2- Memium shadow = Windser blue added to base mix.

    3- Deep shadow = pure Windsor blue.

    4- Medium highlight = Mars brown + Mars orange.

    5- second highlight = Mars orange + Naples yellow.

    6- Extreme highlights = Naples yellow.

    When dry I will give it deeper shades with glazes of Windsor blue and more enhanced highlights With glazes of Naples yellow, and into the oven at a temperature of 140 degrees for a couple of days.

    weathering is done by applying a couple of controlled washes of Raw umber.

    Hey Roc,

    It is looking really nice. Sorry I missed you at the show but wanted to say that your work looks better than the pictures. I really liked the mounted Marlboro?

    Hey Joe, your entire display at the M.F.C.A was outstanding, beautifully painted fugures.

    I to, Am sorry I missed you, would have loved to chat and enjoy a beer with you,
    hopefully next time.

    By the way your work,also looks much better than the pictures, the pictures don't
