A big accomplishment this long weekend, other than sawing the box spring of our spare bed in half (long story), was getting my painting desk set up in the back corner of the basement. Hurrah! I’m hoping it won’t be too cold in the winter. The advantage of the narrow space is that it certainly focuses my attention.
There are a lot of half-finished projects to unpack, but I thought I’d start with the first thing that came out of the box, these Perry Brothers 28mm figures from their American Civil War artillery set. Very inexpensive compared to their equivalent lead figures. I’m painting these as Confederates, even if that means gritting my teeth and using as many different colours (shades of gray and butternut) as possible for the uniforms. Nice to have the artillery cassions, as well.
Blessings to your brushes!
