Capa Figure Prep and Paint

Here's one method I went about preping the figure for primer. After giving the figure a good wash and has dried, I cover/mask the area's to be glued later on, with painters tape. The tape doesn't leave any residue, but is sticky enough to hold while priming. As for paint colors, I used practically all the gray's, warm and cold tones, in my stash, including an ink and pastel.

505th PIR 82nd AIRBORNE painted!

This figure was a blast to paint. Having never painted a figure in black and white, it was really refreshing to do a subject out of my norm. I used almost every shade of grey in my stock of acrylics on this one, from drab warm greys to cold bluish tones. I'll post more pics once the dust settles on my current project. Thanks for visiting.
