Young Miniatures - Wardaddy, US 2nd Armored Division, 1944-45

Just started work on this bust from Young Miniatures.  The face was done some years back for a painting demo and I thought I might use it as practice for painting directional light. It is only a quick sketch at this stage to visualize the lighting and the atmosphere. 

A small piece of blue cellophane was placed in front of a lamp to serve as a guide in determining the color tone generated by the blue light over the initial base color. Subsequently the tones and values were matched on a palette and painted directly onto the bust.
