Here is the next finished illustration this time of the Maryport Artillery. I have painted him as a semi-Victorian artillery uniform with a modern Bordie Helmet and a purple band to identify him as an Albertine.I am rather liking this Victorian influence in my painting and it has dot me thinking to doing some more of these Victorian Uniforms in the future. I am a lucky boy as I have landed me another couple of books to do which are on the English Civil War and will be published through the Shot and Pike Society. These will be a little different from these as them will be firstly historical and in black and white,and this should be fun. More on that a little later.
