Well, I did manage to get on with some base colours last weekend as you can see if you compare this with last week's shot. Unfortunately, it is far too hot in my room to paint at present so I will have to hope it is cooler this afternoon when the sun moves around (although then you lose the light, of course). Big artistic decision today is as to whether I paint the shirts of the 64th Foot white (quick) or an off white (slow). I can then paint their belts plain white so they show up better against the shirts. Of course the belts were buff and then pipe clayed white so buff might work for those too with white shirts. Hmm!
