Here's the acrylic tonal painting almost complete. It's a bit overboard as a lot of folks just do what is called a "cartoon" that consists of the transferred drawing that is just brush painted without and lights or darks being noted. I'll finish it off with a very thin even tone of oils. Then the fun of painting begins.

It's been a chore to get the face done on this figure study. While it may not be a face only a mother could love I'm sure she could at grow to like it. I'm going to do a little more shading and highlighting after this dries. I have to teak the shako a bit too, so that should help. I also had to wipe off the collar and cuffs and hands which need to be redone.
|In addition to the hair I also decided to |
give the figure a mustache. I think it works.

This little project is starting to wind down. Overall the face has been the only part that has given me some problems. Hopefully building up the forms will be the approach that finally works.
|The musket is the only major part left to do.|
After that it's a mater of finishing up uniform
details and completing the grass.
