Seeing this in the ‘flesh’ at AFM Montrouge was an amazing experience. Wonderful work Marc.
thanks Richard ! did not know you were on P and P !
always better to see the actual fig in real !
I saw this work in Eindhoven at the SMC and was amazed. A fantastic work,
it’s all excellent, light-shadow effects, color composition, fabric patterns and then the lilies an extract like the other.
thanks a lot !
glad you liked it
Made gold at Sèvres this yeat
Fantastic work. Very nice…You work very good the oils… Very clean, and good balance between shadows and lights that provide the right volume to the figure.
Wich type of paint do you use for the metals?
very colourful heraldry ...
I wrote an article on this knight in the french “Figurine” magazine explaining that in this particular case, I used the old technique consisting of extremly highly polishing the metal, gradually ending with metal wool (00000 ) before having a great shine with a chrome instrument which is gently rubbed.
then using different shades of oil paint to underline shadows, and adding very small quantities of pure printers ink for the strongest highlights.
some people give a colored varnish finish, which personnaly I did not do .
I like the result as it looks very authentic.
Outrageously good! Very inspiring piece of work!
glad it pleases you
