The photo below has the face finished, with the third highlight,I've added a comment on how to achieve this, I will do a step by step of how to achieve this. on the next job.
I managed to spend a bit of time tonight after coming home from band practice and these guys are starting to look like dragoons still a long way yet, I' still hoping to have them finished by the end of the week but it all depends on family and finding the time. I suppose thats what happens wgen you are a part time painter.
I've now put three layers of green on the coat one on the waist coat i'm going to make this slightly darker finish the red has two layers still needs the highlight some of the horses have their second layer will do some more work on them at work tomorrow lunch time
I'll put up another post late friday see how far i'm along on these guys Oh and thanks guys for the comments i love seeing what you've left motivates me to paint more.
