Arthur de Richemont - Update #2

Three hours of painting the basic "ermine" design was a bit much, but getting them in the right location (balanced) and the right size (consistency) was key.

This keeps the brush from loading up with too much paint, allowing for control and consistency.

Work was begun on the highlights of the fur on his cap using a mix of Titanium White and Burnt Umber. Lighter shades of tan and grey with a final hint of pure white will complete this step. Now on to the lions......
