7 Day Painting Challenge continued...


A very unproductive weekend has passed me by.

Family celebrations over a big barbeque (and cleaning up, and cooking) reduced my painting time severely.

I've painted the small-clothes of fourteen fusileers in their base-coat of pale-gray, that's about it. I'll try to get another few finished tonight and tomorrow morning so I can start on their blue coats.

It's not looking good.

UPDATE: The image above shows you roughly how we are going. I love the chracter that the blackundercoat technique imparts the faces. I also like how well the cartridge belt and small-clothes look with the black undercoat defining the edges of this and that. Nice and crisp, just the way I like it.

Be of good cheer . . . things may yet improve.

I don't seriously expect to finish them in time, but it's fun to see how far I might get. And it's always nice to get home after a long absence and see how (comparatively) little work there may yet be to go.

Those fusileers are looking rather good. Hard to go wrong with RSMs. They look good at any step of the way!
