EMI 5th Macedonian

There has been a bit of progress so far on this EMI kit. I painted the face using the standard mix and techniques spelled out previously. Once completed I spent some time removing the mask from the helmet and armor and applied a black wash to both. More time has been spent on the base. I have applied multiple (approx. 10) washes of color as well as a few layers of color on the water. The stone quay and steps are washes of Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, Greenish Umber, Mars Black, Indian Red and shadow glazes of Van Dyke Brown and Mars Black. The water was a mix of Prussian Green, Greenish Umber and Lamp Black applied in random spots and then stippled with a soft brush until they had been slightly blended together. All of this work is simply a rough sketch base coloring that I can now define more and detail.
