The first of two updates as I work through the painting of our centurion's flesh tones. These first two photos show the basic flesh tones with mid-tone highlight and shadows done with wet-on-wet blending. As always, flesh is a mix of Burnt Sienna, Medium Cad Red and Cad Yellow Deep, with Cad Yellow Deep and Titanium White used as the highlight mix. Nothing new and innovative here, simply another great Laruccia sculpt.
The last two photos show the flesh with deeper shadowing applied. Burnt Umber was utilized as a glaze for this step.
An initial coat of Burnt Umber was applied to the road bed stones to set the tonal value. Additional coats of various colors will build a natural coloration in the stone which will develop as the figure progresses.
