Ardennes Bust Update 7/12

Moving full time into getting this one painted for the APG Show in Gettysburg next month. The face was/is an experiment in just about every tone in my palette applied in light glazes to build up a worn and beaten look. At the same time I wanted to show his strength of spirit so I painted his eyes a bright sparkling blue. I hope that comes across. I have a huge amount of respect for what our guys went through in the Winter of 44. Starting the jacket tonight....
