August Bank Holiday

I've finished 3 figures over the Bank Holiday weekend. Not bad while i've been looking after little Isla at the same time. She usually has a 1-2 hour nap mid mornings, which is excellent 'painting time'. I've been painting a bit more at night as well, and while the lighting isn't great - even with my daylight lamp and extra lamps - I can't be fussy these days with my time.

This is the second officer for my militia battalion. This battalion is so close to being completed now. In this pic I'm experimenting with backgrounds other than the usual clinical white. I'm thinking of using the background of fields for group shots of battalions, I think it's bringing the colours out quite well.
