The King's Life Guard of Foote

Here is the finished illustration of the King's Life Guard of Foote. I have to say I am rather chuffed with the way it has turned out and especially like the face on the chap. I have aim for a naturally red tone for the uniform and hat and I am very happy with the result. Tomorrow will see the start of another illustration, this one will be Prince Rupert's Blew Coates. Well he he is.

    1. I know what you mean but the ECW uniforms especially the King's personal regiments were a rather colourful affair. Glad you like him Simon

    1. Thanks there Clint and in a way yes, I find that when using watercolours as I do I get the reasons rather quickly but I do worry that I may cock the whole thing up and sometimes do.
