    Here is my latest work.
    It 'a sculpture by Maurizio Bruno in 75 mm.
    Produced, in a limited edition, by the italian association "I Normanni" to finance the exhibition of Monreale.
    The painting is acrylic (figure) and oil (flesh).
    I also prepared the setting that will host the minuteman.
    But ther's still much work to be concluded ...
    A special thank to Alberto Fabri for his advice and to Franco Serra for the base.
    Hope you like it. Every observation is welcome.

    Very well painted. I like the figure too and wish I could find one to paint, although he looks more the Boston gentleman than a Lexington farmer. I see him setting off to Charlestown and Bunker Hill with Col. Prescott

    Hard to say more, it's so expressive. I like the groundwork too.

    It's a beautiful figure but when it came out I thought it was too expensive, so I passed on it. I love your take on it though. Absoloutely top-notch painting from head to toe. Looks fantastic.

    Thank you for your appreciation.
    I agree with you.
    In fact my project wanted to represent an American gentleman ready to fight for his city against the Redcoats.
