    Thanks bro. I really appreciate your feedback, good and/or bad. I need to highlight the horse's tail which is painted in oils (Lamp blk), what do you suggest?

    Let it DRY up & pick up the lights in acrylics if I were you...that's what I did sort of on the Consul's helmet plume...painted in acrylics, heavy wash with Blue Black Oils, then when completely dry, I picked up again with base mix, then Carmine Maimeri & then Vallejo's scarlet + Tamiya Flat X-21 to KILL off the Vallejo sheen  Laughing 

    I wouldn't have painted in Lamp Black oils....I would have painted a very dark brown in acrylics, then applied a wash in Lamp Black for added depth  Shocked 

    Now, again if I were you, after I would pick up the lights in acrylics, overdo it a notch, then apply a wash with Burnt Umber oils to add some depth to the Lamp Black  Cool 

    Depth is created by having two very close yet distinguishable tones showing thru  Suspect

    It was actually painted in black acrylic then heavily washed with Lamp black, now I need to highlight it. I used black because I read that Bay horses have black main, tail, lower legs and points  scratch Your method would have been pefect I guess. Now "wara li l-froga saret", with what colour can I highlight the Lamp black please?
    The body was underpainted with Raw umber acrylics, then glazed with W&N Raw umber, shadowed with a mix of Raw umber and mars blk, highlights added wet on dry with Mars orange. I will bring it with me on wednesday to show you the result in the flesh.

    I'm night this evening mate  Sad 

    However Stephen is conducting the painting tutorial & he'll be more than glad to pull your ears for daring to work in oils in such a SMALL SPACE  pale 

    Raw Umber I try to avoid or rarely use as it gives a greenish muddy tint  Suspect 

    Black Horses are actually very very Dark Brown so the mid tone should be Dark Brown with highlights applied accordingly & using either Blue Black or Lamp Black for lowlights  Twisted Evil 

    If you've SHOUTED for help before taking the plunge, Stephen has LOADS of acrylic horse mixes he would have gladly given you MR.RELAX  lol!

    Thanks skyhigh. The red is much less bright than in the photos. I think it is due to the flash. scratch

    Judging from the pics, the red seems to be lacking a bit of depth of tone  pale

    Yes, Ray as I said the red in the photos is different to the real thing. I will bring it to the club as soon as I can. Having said that, I kept the highlights a bit low too because I didn't want to make it look too bleached given that he's a bishop, however I agree that more depth will definitely improve it. Will correct later, when I find some time to spare :'(

    I adjusted the photo's vibrance on my son's calibrated monitor and got it much closer to the model's...

    Looks a bit better  Twisted Evil 

    The secret of painting red is something like this...

    Base - Red + Green....

    Then start highlighting with the Red & stop with the Red  Twisted Evil 

    No need to BLEACH the Red for highlights  Evil or Very Mad 

    Vallejo Scarlet + Tamiya X-21 should do the trick  Twisted Evil   cheers 

    Or else IMHO another option is Scale 75 as they produce a fine selection "ready made sets"  Cool

    Thanks for the pointers mate. I will use them together with Stephen's on my next RED project. Will bring it over to the club next time over.
