I have just two days left to complete my personal challenge to paint and base 24 DBN elements by the end of April and it's looking good. Today I have 10 x British line infantry to paint and tomorrow 4 French Dragoons and that will complete my target.
Each morning starts with coffee and a dog walk followed by my usual breakfast and the replenishing of the previous days mini wet palette. Generally speaking I have completed the painting and basing by around 5pm with breaks to do other things of course. I think I mentioned previously that I like to keep my evening free from painting.
On the subject of the palette, as you can see it's very much a miniaturised version of that I used for many years, especially in Spain where the extreme summer heat meant paint dried out in minutes. I find this little lid can keep paint open all day so any retouching does not require more paint and wastage. I generally cut out a few days worth of grease proof paper circles and keep them in the drawer. I give each fresh circle a rub over with water and away I go.
Right, I'm off to paint some soldiers and will update on Friday (1st May) with pictures of both armies completed .....fingers crossed!
