Weekly Update

I was too lazy to clear off my photo table this morning, so here's a little group shot of works in progress taken from the airbrush booth. I'm doing something a little different with Elsie and working up her light areas more  aggressively first. You might remember from previous posts that I did some drybrushing on her before starting to roan and that has helped speed things up.

Max is almost ready for me to do some of the final roaning on him, I think, and with Max and Elsie together I will have my hands full for the  next couple of weeks.

These smaller models are moving along much more quickly than the traditional sizes I've been working on, so I am thinking that I might try a ratio of 3-4 mini-sizes for every traditional size that I paint in the future. That way, I'll still be able to get some things out there, while also being able to work on a larger project which is much easier on my eyes.

I'm feeling bitter right now because I thought we were going to get a lot of snow here in the Seattle area, but it's not anywhere near what they predicted. That always happens, yet I always get my hopes up. I really miss those midwestern winters...
