Acrylic on canvas 18x10ish oval. This is my first experiment with sepia tones.
I actually used to wear this ceremonial uniform when I was a member of this regiment "The Royal Candian Dragoons" officially formed in 1883 in Quebec and currently in Petawawa Ontario Canada.
The tunic is red serge with dark blue facings and riding breaches with yellow stripe. The helmet is solid brass with black horse hair plume.

These are beautifully observed and painted Peter - they're a very attractive pair.
