Well, to say nothing happened on the painting front this weekend, wouldn't be quite true - given the weather has taken a turn for the worst!
Just to cold to sit there and apply paint, so went off and did domestic stuff like shopping and taking the cat to the vet (Always a joy!). Whilst, visiting the local business park, I noticed than Maplins were having a closing sale, never one to miss an opportunity I stuck my head in to see if anything caught my eye. To my pleasant surprise I found a magnifier lamp and a headband magnifier kit, all for under fifty pounds, so have invested a small amount of cash to see if these items would give me a significant improvement in my current painting.
As, any of you have seen my painting recently will a test - it's not the most genteel, I describe myself as dauber of paint, rather than a painter attempting a graceful application of colour and have put this down to my diminishing eyesight and shaking hand (long gone are my days of winning painting categories at Colours - hence, I say myself - I'm now a painter of armies not figures; hopefully, these items will help.
First impression are good - especially with the head kit with its the multiple lens and the multi-pose lamp does exactly what it says on the tin. So, am currently moving my painting station back into the study and hoping to show you a bit more progress with the giant and goblins, later today, as I'm going no where fast, given the weather.
