I've been asked to make five busts for some British Soldiers who are due to leave the service shortly. The busts being a gift from their colleagues. It's a tremendous honour to be making them and I'm also enjoying the fresh challenge they bring.
The photographs don't show the painting clearly, but I used a lot of ink washes on the skin, for the facial hair etc.
They will be mounted on black Onyx plinths when they're all done. Only another four to go for the beginning of March,,,gulp.
