Though I am not yet finished, I had a rather successful second attempt at painting a miniature. This time, the paint did not explode all over me. I did determine that my eyesight isn’t quite a good as it used to be – the fine details are rather difficult to see these days – but not enough that I wasn’t able to complete most of the task.
I was able to do the base coat, and apply the washes, but then had to let the figure dry over night before I work on the dry-brushing this evening. Overally, I am quite happy with the results, and briefly considered leaving the figure as is, and calling it done. But my goal was full painting, so I am going to wrap it up this evening.
Did not end up video taping the job, mainly due to the effort involved in the camera. However, I am considering that this may be a worthwhile streaming option for Twitch or YouTube, which would also create the archive video. Just need to figure out the best way of handling that while travelling.
