    conny...that is excellent...30mm..well that is one small flat...The metal is really nice with lots of contrast, and that attractive miniature style painting on the caparison and banner....The lovely orange/ochre based colour that you used on the banner with the contrasting gold coloured patterns, for me, sets the whole piece off....beautiful work...

    You can say that again. I guess one of the reasons I like flats so much is because they are about as close to art as a miniaturist can get. Yes this is my opinion and yes you are free to yours. Without a doubt there are those miniaturist among us who are the exception to the ruls. It's just that, TO ME, a flat painter more closely resembles a classically trained artist than any other. Conny, your flats are art. I thoroughly enjoy your flats and look forward to more! Youv'e inspired me to attempt my first. Not that my results will be anywhere near yours. But I'm going to try ;) :lol: .

    Thanks,

    Good point Jim. I agree with your opinion regarding flats.
    There is a definite degree of accomplishment that a good flat painter has over a figure painter. The 3 dimensional quality of a figure does alot of your shading and highlighting work for you as opposed to a flat painter who must create the illusion of 3 dimensions from 2. If done with the right touch it is masterful as the above attests.
