A Little Sunday Painting in Zum Stollenkeller. . .

 Blobs of color on the piece of palette paper above include Prussian Blue, Yellow Ochre, Flesh Tone, Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna, Black, and Sap Green.

A spot of painting here in Zum Stollenkeller this afternoon.  The usual oils and alkyd oils thinned with Liquin Original, so the air is subtly fragrant with that delightful aroma of pigment and the vehicles in which it has been suspended.  Among the four individually based figures currently under the brush include Banastre Tarleton and Francis Marion by Fife & Drum.  Eagerly awaiting the arrival of two packages that contain various bits and pieces that will become either the supply train or the pontoon train.  Exciting times indeed!

Just a reminder, Stokes, that Grant's "Wagon Train" scenario is LOTS of fun to play.

I heartily agree with the above comments. It's always a special issue with one of your enjoyable articles inside.
Weather or not I ever use oils in my painting is another thing, but it got the old brain thinking of my painting style.
Keep up the good work.
Cheers.
