    Anastasiya Podorozhna sculpted this amazing semi-round bust in a scale about 1/7 , released by Alexandros miniatures, ( http://www.alexandrosmodels.com/categories/revolution-xix-century/r-112-grenadier-wall-bust ).
    So, both gave me the chance to hold in my hands the bust of a veteran, hard-working, experienced, gun-toting, fanatical Napoleonic Grenadier of the Old Guard. The surface and volumes of the face are very smooth and clean, making the painting process a real joy for me. I tried to give as much tension and imagination as I could, to convince firstly myself that this face belongs to such a man!

    Have recently started to paint again (after about a decade of abstinence) - now I'm asking myself: Why bother? :arghh:
    Truly excellent brushwork!

    I have to admit that I am not so crazy about this half-bust concept, but your execution of the paint job is nothing short of amazing!
    It's a pure joy just to look at it over and over again

    Cheers,
