A second delightful and highly productive hour in the painting chair yesterday evening. This time, I flew solo following my young painting partner's bedtime. My session saw numerous small details painted in on my own figures, which I am eager to finish, so I can move on to an infantry regiment of either Austrians, or blue-coated Reichsarmee, or a blue-coated Prussian allied regiment.
But that's putting cart before the, ahem, horse. The session was one of those all too rare times when it seemed the figures almost painted themselves. One detail was completed so quickly that I moved on to the next and the next and the next. . . And so forth. The only 'big' things to do are to finish the grey horse's coat and paint the wooden bases their usual bright green.
In any case, I stopped painting just before 10pm, highly satisfied with my work, and repaired upstairs to join The Grand Duchess for time by the fireside with a glass of something medicinal before retiring just after Midnight.
