To that end, I chose to paint Rose, a Juvenile, from Hasslefree Miniatures sculpted by Kev White. My goal was to use negative space and subdued colours to create a grim and somber mood. The single flower on the base is to represent a Poppy. I carved the base from Super Sculpey.
Also I have just finished my first Dinosaur as a practice for several dino's I plan on painting for the Challenge. I will post that this month in honour of Michael Awdry's "Dinovember", a yearly event I have come to look forward to.
Later this week I will do a separate post that will outline my plans for this years Winter Challenge. I will tell you this as a teaser though. Someone out there threw down a gauntlet and I chose to pick it up. Details will be in my next post.
