Spanish Sailors 16-17th Century - RedBox

One of those subjects that, when you go looking for references for clothing Colours and the like, there´s virtually nothing. 

There´s one or two contemporary paintings showing Crew, like  Johann Theodore de Bry´s  "The renewal of the alliance between Francisco Pissarro and Diego de Almagro ...(to explore and exploit Peru) …(HERE)  
Mostly blues, reds and Yello/Browns but the mix of Colours on the painting Looks..concieved. Still, better than Nothing. 
There´s a Little Flash to deal with  but not a lot. Over at PSR the set gets a decent review (HERE)
Why am I painting late Renaissance bods? Well, you´ll have to wait and see.
