French foreig legion,1/16 Metal modeles.

Posted by santifernandez on 02 May 2017, 19:06

After several months in dry paint I decided to follow this beautiful bust on 1/16 scale of a French legionary at the end of the Great War.
I hope you encourage me to continue with the brushes and be of your liking also.

Lovely face work,it really stands out against the dark back ground. The Old Dutch Masters, Painters one and all, used well the same school of thought. Several members here use it too, in the bright dark way they wish to present their work.
Santi, I always enjoy seeing your work.
So keep working when you can with your brushes wet or dry. BB

Mates,The end of painting is approaching, only need to decorate the base and look for a wooden stand to decorate.
This has been a hard work of brushes but a lot of fun, I used acrylics and some oil to give strength to the face.
your coments and critics are welcome.
