A little bit more and it's finished  [ Guests cannot view attachments ] more brown on the face and hands with a little white and yellow for the highlights.

Green jacket shaded with blue and the light in yellow again, buttons in ochre and yellow, cap a mix of brown and green and shaded with brown and white for the light.
The beard was first a brown and blue mix followed with white, pipe the same

So why when I'm a oil painter? soon down my local club I will be showing how to paint flats, acrylics is the chosen medium so I thought better have a go, but just one more thing this figure was painted with just 5 tubes of paint, titanium white,yellow ochre,phthalo green, ultramarine blue,cadmium yellow and one 0/3 brush      [ Guests cannot view attachments ]   So if your told you need loads of paints and special brushes just smile as you know you don't ;D

I'll go back to oils now but have a go at mixing and not straight from the tube or pot  ;)

OK! next basic flesh white, red, yellow and brown mixed till a rough colour is made and applied to the figure, yep looks a mess  ::)  [ Guests cannot view attachments ]
But after a little work with brown for shade, white and yellow do the highlights it all starts to come together, and tiny bit of red and it will do for now, acrylics!!! I thought it was a good idea at the start  :o  [ Guests cannot view attachments ]

Amazed by Dirk's painted figures I'm going to have a go at acrylics!
This is the figure I'm going to try and copy,  it's one of Jupiter miniatures  ::) [ Guests cannot view attachments ]
First trim the flash from the figure then we undercoat with white acrylic, no washing or vinegar baths  and leave for a few hours to let dry.
