Look closely. The brown and gray undercoats on all shoulder and waist belts are finally done! Fairly easy (???) now to go back, hold my breath, and add sparing white or lighter brown highlights here and there.
Not much time in the painting chair yesterday (Sunday), but I did manage to apply the rest of my usual light gray to the white shoulder belts and waist belts late in the afternoon. Today is earmarked for highlighting these with dashes of white following an appointment in the periodontist's chair, and some time straightening the garage. Oh, joy!
It makes sense to take care of the musket straps and shoulder straps (on the left) after that (must check on the colors for those) before then coming back to the brown shoulder belts to highlight those very carefully and SPARINGLY. I have found over the years that one of my annoying painting habits is to flood the brush (and area) with color. It still happens, even now after almost four decades of painting 15-25mm figures when my attention wanders.
If you too share similar painting tendencies, join me in a round of the painter's mantra. Less is more, less is more, less is more, less is more. . . There now. Better?
Once the belts and straps have been seen to, I'll sit down with pen and paper and make a 'to do' list of all remaining items in need of paint. Somewhere in there, the blasted horse must be addressed. I've mentioned it before, but thus far have delayed doing anything about ol' Dobbin. . . with considerable success I might point out. The road to painting hell and all that.
