    DF Grieve 65mm Cameron Highlander, painted in oils over acrylics. This is a bit of a trial piece, as I'm trying to get used to using a new magnifyer that I bought and it's a bit tricky at the moment as the perspective seems to be a little distorted - the brush looks twice as big as the part I'm painting!! LOL. I'll get used to it I guess.

    Dave-

    Ahh... the dicing and tartan! Very nice. You'll get used the magnifier, too.

    Nicely done! Optivisors are tough at first but really aid in the "fine details" later on!

    Thanks guys. I don't have the optivisor, I bought a magnifyer on a stand that has a 10" x 8" size lens, I can use it with plenty of space to paint without the edges of the frame getting in the way.

    How long did you paint that figure? :angry:

    To paint that thin lines you sould use acrylics. ;) You can paint on oil base. 65 mm?? It's too big for me. :lol: To big about eleven milimeters :p

    Keep going... when we should expected next, more detailed figure?

    Cheers

    Marcin,
    It took two weeks, mainly at weekends, to paint this one - about average for me depending on the demands of my family!.

    I'll take your advice on painting the lines in acrylic,but I have found before that acrylics don't always want to adhere properly over oils.

    Next (if it works!) is a major conversion including some sculpting. If it comes out OK it'll be seen here first!

    Thanks Stefano,

    I reckon D F Grieve is the master of this kind of figure, they make great peices for a painter. I'm pleased that you like my work.

    Thanks guys,

    Kyle, the tartan here is as close as I can get to Cameron of Erracht - still trying to work out why I put myself through this every time I fancy painting a jock!

    Dave, nice job, those tartans are very difficult to paint, I always have problems with them.
    Keep on trying , have fun and never get discouraged. ;)

    Cheers
