Starting with the paintwork

The last days I have made a start with the paintwork. First I tried to paint without using a primer. But this was a disaster. So after cleaning and priming the figure I started as usual with the face. After some layers of the base color Brownsand. I painted the highlights and shadows using basic skin tone and burnt cadmium red. Afterwards the highlights and shadows were blended using very diluted paint. Most of the blend work is done on the right side of the face. I'm still working on the left side. When the blend work is finished I will continue painting the hair and moustache. The hat is painted using a base english uniform which was highlighted with a sand color and shadows with black. The red are painted with  base color and some rough highlights. Soon another update.
