My latest finished piece. 

A Christmas present painted in 4 hrs almost entirely with an airbrush (eyes, top highlights and red glazes on flesh, buttons and dry brushing on hair are only parts done with a brush).

Not entirely sure of scale (somewhere between 1/5 and 1/6 scale) as it was bought from a music shop and started life in a white alabaster resin.

Painted in Vallejo acrylics (model air, colour and metals ranges).

Fun project to do and interesting to work with a bust not designed for painting, required some filling on eyes (pupils where recessed into eyeball) and a badly carved in name on plinth section.
I would definitely recommend keeping your eyes peeled for this sort of bust, if you are interested in painting larger scale busts and figures.

Thanks for looking 
(pics slightly bleached due to me doing photos on my phone with harsh daylight bulb lights, better pics to follow when I get a chance)

Stephen,

Nice work, especially with the majority of it just in AB. The skin tones and variations are especially nice. thanks for posting!

Thanks for comments 

Sadly this sculpted is a bit on slim faced side for J.S Bach (he seems to have a slightly rounder face in the portraits i can find online).
But the sculpt is good and details crisp so I think I may well end up looking for similar busts in future (possibly a philosopher or psychologist) .

As promised better pics (better colour balance and far closer to reality)

Included a paint bottle in this one to give an idea of size (my description maybe a bit hard to follow)
