    Hi everyone - I'm a big fan of the movie Zulu so had a lot of fun painting this one. I think the sculpt is a good likeness of Stanley Baker. I slightly altered the mouth to change the expression. I used various photos to try to paint a likeness.

    I used acrylics. Hope you like it.

    Having done this Bust. ( Not as good as this I hasten to add)
    You have done a first rate job on him.
