Plugging away. . .

The horse painting is more or less finished here. A nice grey for the trumpeter (with a white wash on raised areas) and black horses for Colonel von Heide and his standard bearer. Look closely, and you'll see the dark blue dry-brushed carefully onto the flanks, necks, and legs of the two horses concerned, providing a 'dark' highlight. Hmmm. Is that an oxymoron?


A husband's work is never done. But, I managed to squeeze in a couple of roughly hour-long painting sessions yesterday on either side of assembling a complex piece of IKEA furniture and mowing the grass in the front and back yards. Who know that assembling a bathroom storage cabinet with a single drawer could be so involved??!! Still, the three cuirassier command figures, Colonel Heinrich von Heide and company, are coming along nicely. Hopefully, I'll be able to get an hour or so in this evening. Keep your fingers crossed!

Try mixing some flesh color with black to create a nice black highlight color.
