Could Marko open a new category, let's say "Uniformology", in the member section, where we could share informations, pictures and so ...?

Eric, it would be good to put colour plates into a topic area in the member's section somewhere if they are available ;)

I believe they are all published in one of the French magazines. There were two issues dedicated to Egyptian campaign. The pictures are not so good as in Rousselot's Guard Cavalry book but still big and sharp enough.

Ahhhh ... we go all French now!

I which that all the paintings by Rousselot from Napoleon´s Egyptian campaigne could be published in some form. Earlier they were to be seen at the Army Museum in Paris. But now they are gone from the walls, hidden away from the public eye, which i do regret as I was there with my camera.

Bonsoir
Pour ton premier plat tu ne choisis pas la simplicité !
En complément je te joins une aquarella de Lucien Rousselot qui complétera ta doc
Tu noteras que le bleu est assez clair;  comme base je prendrai du bleu hortensia, de l'ultramarine et du blanc
Eclairage blanc et ombres violettes
Le pantalon rouge : cadmium et carmin d'alizarine, eclairage blanc + jaune, en évitant de tomber dans le rose ou le orange; ombres ultramarine
Le dromadaire une combinaison d' ochre jaune, terre de sienne, brun Van Dyck, éclairage jaune de Naples + blanc
Tout cela n'est qu'une base; après c'est au feeling
Bon courage
Eric
