And whilst I couldn't paint detail, oil painting horses wasn't an issue. At the same time I have been introduced to coloured primer spray. My usual method is to primer horses in white, acrylic paint them a brown or sand colour then oil them before wiping off.
The purchase of a leather brown and sand coloured spray primer has removed one of these processes speeding things up, it does however reduce slightly the variety of colours I am getting so I need to beware of that.
I also picked up his King Charles figure, taken from a famous painting of the Warrior King. I have not yet decided if he will have a command base or slot into a unit of Guard Dragoons leading them forward.
You might also notice the ticket for Black Star Riders tonight just behind the King. He's not going I am. For those of you who have not heard of them this is the surviving members of Thin Lizzy who have a raft of their own new music as well as some old classics.
Has this post gone off piste and given itself a bit of a Rock theme?
Thanks for reading, nice to be back (In Black)
