Lt Bromhead colour detail

Just checking the details of Lt. Bromhead’s uniform epaulettes, then I can get this section of the painting finished.

Uploaded here are the latest photos of my progress on VALOUR – a tribute to the men of the 24th awarded the Victoria Cross at Rorke’s Drift.

Here are the first 3 photos showing my painting progress.

VALOUR – the story of a painting.

This is the first of 3 photos I’ve uploaded to the WATERCOLOURS section where I’m logging the progress of this work.

LT. GONVILLE BROMHEAD added to THE DEFENCE OF RORKE’S DRIFT page

This is my pencil drawing of Lt. Gonville Bromhead. I depict him as I imagine he felt on that day in 1879 as he prepared for the Zulu attack – tense, alert, determined, resilient, anxious but unafraid.
