Hussar Painting Freshly Finished!
Just a quick posting before some evening work on student papers -- Save for the touch-ups tomorrow (not very many), painting on the first squadron is now finished. Yes! Spent about two hours this evening, applying yellow and gold lace detail to the officers and troopers respectively along with finishing the sashes and white markings on the horses' muzzles and ankles. It was a most satisfying painting session! Unfortunately, the Grand Duchess has the digital camera this evening at a university event, so you'll have to wait for a photo update or two until the touch-ups and clear protective coating are all done. But patience is a virtue. . . or so I'm told. ;-)
