Well for a first finished painting that is a particularly fine work, well done I wish I could paint like that ! I really like the bust as well. My skills go as far as helping the kids paint their Warhammer figures. Although I think I am now more into it than they are, as I am finding it a great way to relax in the evening.
As some of you know I sculpt and paint miniatures. Not in the mood while under house arrest so I decided to have a bash at oil painting on canvas. Mostly done except for final touch ups and glazes.
My first finished painting ever and 3rd ever attempt; based on a 200mm miniature bust by Alexandros Models (pictured).
Michel Ney, Prince of the Moskowa, Duke of Elchingen.
”The Bravest of the Brave.” “Le Rougeaud.”
The only real downside of this whole isolation thing is that I miss having kids still at home. We have grand kids but of course they can not come over nor can we visit and play with them. They are the only soft spot in my cynical personality. 😉
By the way, a group of geese is a gaggle, would a group of grandchildren be a mess?
Thanks for your reply JohnF, it brings a much needed air of humour to the forum.
