    I finally got around to painting the head,it is not finished yet,it still needs a bit more highlight and a bit more shadows.

    Base = Rembrant flesh ochre + windsor Newton Transparent Gold Ochre +
    Rembrant burnt Sienna and a touch of Windsor blue to cool the mix .
    medium shadow = Base + Mars Brown .
    Dark shadows = Allizarin brown.
    Extreme shadows = Sepia.

    Medium Highlights = base + Naples Yellow.
    extreme highlights = Naples yellow.

    The mouth.
    Burnt umber + magenta.

    The teeth.
    unbleached white with with a touch of Cadmium red.


    Rose tones
    Cadmium red + touch of Indian red mixed into medium shade mix.

    Lips
    Added more indian red to rose tones.

    Hey Roc, so far so good. Looking forward to the rest of the figure.

    BTW, an ingenious way of using the clothe peg.

    Hey Roc!

    The face looks very nice and realistic. It will look a lot better once you add some more shadows and highlights. Keep us posted, it's going to be a great figure once it is all put together!

    Robin,Wong,Joe,Stephen and Anders Thanks for the compliments,much appreciated.

    I apologize for forgetting to write down Titanium white in by base flesh.

    After the face dries,I will add very extreme highlights and shadows.
    I will brush linseed oil on the eyes to give them a sheen.

    Roc. :)
