    I'm never going to paint knights again! There's no point. This is simply the best knight I've ever seen. Superb.

    Simply outstanding. I didn't know they made brushes that small. The effect is just jaw dropping.

    I can hardly add anything that hasn't already been said. In fact, I'm at a loss for words (not quite).

    The freehand work is unbelievable and the base and ground work raise it to a new level.

    Well done Alex,

    Thank you guys. Actually I have used only two brushes during the painting of this figure. A Raphael number 1 and a number 2.
    The Raphael number 1 has a belly twice as big as the W&N 7 serie number 1. So you have twice more hair which are able to hold more paint and more importantly more water in order to slow the drying of the tip. For freehand work, I never dilute my paint that much. Most of the time, it is one drop of water for one drop of Vallejo model color paint. I like also the W&N serie 7 and used them also, depending which one I have on hand on my workbench. I think that you could actually even use a number 3 for doing delicate freehand work as long as the tip is perfect !

    Hardly anything I can add to all the great supportive comments already mentioned. Work like yours gives some of us some real motivation to get our paint brushes wet. My figure painting experience is limited but I always enjoy finding these treasure threads of enjoyment.
