33rd Foot done...almost

The painting is basically done. The only thing left is to put more highlights on the musket barrel. It's drying really slow. I think I'm going to start using Liquin to help accelerate drying. the reds turned okay though they could be a bit darker for an enlisted man.

The technical side of my painting continues. I found
studying how artists keith Rocco and Robert Griffing
helpful in getting the red coat to where it's at now.
highlighting red is a bit tricky, but that will come in
