    oops.... weird moment... I'm back to brushes after many periods of just using putty.

    I have shown you some pieces waiting for brush and now I am painting another one.
    it is an officer of the 8 corazzieri in the revolutionary period. the only regiment equipped with cuirass at that time

    the piece is a sculpture of Bruno Leibovitz not in production and that exists only in 5 pieces. I am a lucky owner of one of them
    I started with acrylic paints and there is still a lot of work to do on the face and other parts.

    And then there is the horse from the Figurinitaly range that fits well as size and morphology and ... finally a naked horse without the whole saddle but only the halter ... it was a long time that I was looking for this possibility and this figure leaning against the fence has given me the opportunity to do it.

    but what color would you see the horse in? Black, gray, sorrel... not bay... I've painted too many recently.

    Hi Ivo

    Lovely modelling on Lasalle , certainly a flamboyant subject ..of course it is ...being him !

    Like the horse work and pose

    Hope to see this painted .......in between your other projects

    As for the Cuirassier I think a gray would work well ...dappled ...good contrast its the figure ....only 5 pieces ..wow !

    Happy benchtime

    Hi Ivo,
    As I have told you previously, I love all your work bot the ancien regime period pieces in particular. One thing though, I have tried using the copper sheet as you to
    d me but I find it very difficult to bend to form the coat tail pleating. Perhaps a SBS on this issue next time? Gracie!

    I agree with your interpretation of Polish Crimson Ivo for what it is worth.

    Having done a mini poll on horse color it turned out that the majority saw a dark gray.
    here the result of some hour painting... I decided to paint a very dark grey with some dappled and rich of tones.

    Job isn't finished yet...
    Hope you enjoy

    Excellent work especially on the horse - how did you make the hair so lifelike.
