    I have worked with several refractive photographs. And you know I can't find them now. When I find it, I will help.

    A little bit more progress on the medals and badges. Main colours for the medal ribbons done in oils. Once dry I’m going to run a thin wash over the ribbons to pick out the material details. Medals themselves have had the first wash and highlight but again will being going back to them when drier. Jumper is also going to get a wash as there is some lovely texture on there to bring out. 09E9BB03-EA80-40BD-8F4D-FDE69699A3B8.jpeg 79C0C75A-94E2-4238-A558-636C17AD4A96.jpeg 745AD50C-3EB8-4137-84AD-C4E2C6B6B38A.jpeg

    Hi Neal

    Now it's really starting to come together , the colours of the ribbons add a nice touch of colour

    Agree about the jumper , a shame not to push the textures

    Thanks for sharing

    I think they were blue wings but in a circle. I really can't find the picture. But you can also apply another badge. You can choose.

    I think I’m going to call this one finished. Really enjoyed painting this bust, the face in particular. Just need to decide on a suitable name plate for him. I’ve added some pics of the other bust I started alongside this one - Charles de Gaulle. Still need to do some bits and pieces on that one but it’s not that far off being finished also. Thanks for looking in and for the extra reference material provided, it was really appreciated.

    The veteran looks the dogs Neal and DeGaulle is coming along nicely. Both faces are full of character which reflects Pavols sculpting skills.
    great work.

    Well done Neal, that's superb painting, great flesh tones and the grey jumper is spot on for Grandad.
    Love it.
