It's a quiet morning. Mrs McCarthy sweeps the church vestibule. (77088: Townsfolk: Grandmother)
Lady Frances and Lady Rebecca admire the new flower beds in the church garden. (59009: Mad Scientist and 50327: Victorian Ladies)
It's a beautiful day, what could possibly go wrong?
The blue dress was inspired by this painting:
Apparently I never started a WIP thread for this miniature. This is Reaper's 50304: Rowena Von Graaf, sculpted by Julie Guthrie, which I started painting a long time ago. She's a fun steampunk figure.
All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
I decided to paint her with a pretty black face.
Here's a close-up of her face. There are tiny white points which are microscopic unpainted pits in the figure. They are much smaller irl than they show up in the photographs. I am slowly (maddeningly) working to fill them in as I go.
I decided to paint her underskirt pink. This is Quinacridone Magenta lightened with Titanium White.
And the base coat on her dress and spats is straight Red Oxide.
And this is where I left her (cough) about a year and a half ago. More to come!
