    Hard to recognise the original in there Brian.

    If I hadn't got the figure in my own collection I wouldn't have recognised him

    Now that is a really nice piece of painting. A great achievement. I like the muted colours you use Brian, gives a faded look to the uniforms. Truly inspirational. How do you achieve it?

    Many thanks Chris,I use different shades of raw umber and whites mixed into my uniform colours to give that faded look,I just keep working the colours until I'm happy with the effect I'm after,it can be a little difficult explaining it,but I hope you understand what I mean.

    Couldn't have been anything other than a Smudger figure. Instantly recognisable, permanently brilliant.

    Chris,you probably won't get the results you want straight away,what works for me doesn't always mean it will work for someone else,you just have to practise and work on it mate,oils can be very daunting to some people but given time and growing in confidence working with them,in my opinion there the best medium to paint with.

    Thank you Brian. Point well taken.

    Most of my efforts are trail and error, as I don't do a lot of painting.:sick: Nonetheless, the outstanding work presented on this forum is inspirational, and has encouraged me to get back into the hobby after many, many years away from it. I have learnt a lot from the PF members who have kindly given advice and help.

    I derive great pleasure looking at the excellent work the PF members present here. Truly talented people. I will never get to the standard shown, but paint simply for the enjoyment of creating something.

    Hi, Brian, glad to hear the thumb is better....once again, your latest masterpiece crept under my radar;) Brilliant addition to your ever-growing 'Oeuvre de travail'. Extremely effective.

    Pleased to hear that your thumb's on the mend Brian.
    Great to see another of your masterpieces moving from the bench to the display cabinet.
    This one really does look like he's been dragged backwards through the proverbial hedge.

    Cheers,
