Here they are, with the thinned alkyd oil yellow freshly applied. In about eight hours, they should be dry and ready for the next step.
The obligatory mid-distance shot, featuring some of my paints, brush soap, palette paper, and thinning medium.
And a third shot of the same. I must admit that I am pleased with the way these have come together so far. The 19 figures here are starting to look like something by this point.
The yellow is all done now, and I managed to plow through the job in one longer than usual sitting this (Saturday) afternoon without making any irreparable mistakes. It does not always happen that way! I used a very thin wash of Winsor & Newton Griffin alkyd oil London Yellow, which was mixed with three drops of runny Liquin Fine Detail solution, and applied using a #2 round with a decent point. Next up, the white shoulder straps, drummer's various straps, and, perhaps, also the black neckstocks. The latter are always a major headache to paint in and usually one of the last items I address, so I thought that I would tackle them now while my enthusiasm is still high. Be sure to tune in again real soon!
