    Roberto ciao . You have acomplished a very beautiful work on this lovely piece. clean painting , neat brushtrokes, and tones that define the figure correctly . I would have some disagreement on the clean and fresh wood fence piece, but you have recreate the wood surface so nicely , that i cannot say anything !!!!

    Best regards lad and best luck for the Show this weekend . This one is a sure winner

    Dear friends thank you again for your kind comments.
    Costas my friend it is good to hear from you.I wanted to recreate something bleached from the sun.i did not get it right.
    Next time i will start from a grey rather than a light beige colour.
    I'm not sure that i want to change it at this late stage.
    What do you guys think?

    Hi Daniel
    thank you for your comment.
    The mix for the white is as follow
    Base : Off white ,english uniform ,dark flesh ,and black.
    Hilights :add more off white.Use white only in the area of maximum lights.
    Shadows area:Add small ammounts of black and english uni.
    All these are Valleyo acrilics.Dilute with distilled water.
    During the shading process i keep my colours very diluted.
    Especially when painting whites.
    Thank you again
    Roberto
