    Marc, my friend, thanks for all the encouragement; it really helps me to go on.

    I talked to Guy on Saturday and he told me that his Janissary in underway, it is primed and ready to be painted, I'm sure he will start painting it real soon.

    Cheers

    I just finished painting the stockings, when completely dry I will give them glazes of extreme highlights and shadows.
    Since the stockings cover the legs which are the bottom half of the Janissary, the highlights will therefore be a bid more subdued .

    Oh yeah, it's coming right along. Can't wait to see the completed project.

    BTW, you mentioned glazing. I've heard that term before and sort of have an idea of how to achieve it. Yet, it would be nice to learn about the technique in detail. Have you written anything about this subject anywhere on this site that I might have missed. If not, I would sure appreciate an explanation on how to achieve acceptable results through this technique.

    thx
    Francis :)

    Roc,
    Outstanding!
    I really like the colors you have shown on this piece...the red tone is awesome, as are the subtle transition in the highlights. I can't wait to see more! Very striking.

    All the best

    Francis, bonjour mon ami,J'espère que le Janissary arrive à un conclution heureux.

    Glazing is a very simple process but the figure has to be completely dry especially if you are using oils.

    GLAZING

    Highlight- Use the highest highlight color possible on the uppermost extremities of the figure, the oil paint must be the consistency of melted butter and used very sparingly.


    Shadows - apply the darkest shadow color possible in the deepest part of the shadow,using the same consistency as above.

    the process is usually repeated several times in between dryings.
    I hope this helps.

    Hi Marc, I always enjoy hearing from you and thanks for folowing my step by step.

    The reason why I haven't been doing much posting lately is because I've been shopping for a new car, you know how that is, but I finally bought one and therefore the postings will start flowing more regularly. ;)

    By the way our friend Guy has begun his Janissary and he will be posting some pictures soon.





    Keep up the good work.

    Cheers

    Wow !!! That sure is going to be one very colourful figure ! I do like those bold colours, very nice! Roc, what kind of scenic background will you do for this one ? It would be great if you could make him come down the stairs of some palace - how did they call the big one in Istanbul, wasn't that "Topkapi" (or something ?)

    Best regards,

    Johan

    He Rocco,

    Four days to buy a new car. Here in Holland the cars are very expencive, so i always by a second hand from about 4 years old.
    It took me mostly 5 minutes to buy someone. It took me almost 3 years for saving the money. That is a lot a figures less in the shelve. (is that correct???).

    But i am happy that you and Guy are painting again. It is better than buying cars and having pain on your back.

    For Now, Goodnight

    Marc
