"Tommy"- Painted

Here's the painted piece. It felt a little strange painting nothing but drab colors. But I did find it much easier to blend when painting colors with greens, browns and tans.

This fella represents an infantryman with Lancashire Fusiliers during the Somme Offensive
of 1916.

I wanted to depict him coming from an aid station with a fresh bandage showing of his "close call" with a bullet or shrapnel. The expression on the face of the Hornet head fit this subject nicely.

I would like to thank Dan Morton for reference material. He is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to World War One uniforms and equipment.
Without his help this project would have taken twice as long to complete.

I'm pretty happy with results and may try another "modern" type subject later on.

Thanks for following.
