    I know it's a bit boring but I don't know any artists :D

    Thanks Jay. I have some more 17th Cent. flats lined up so watch out for further installments.

    Very good work.
    I think Steve can make a backdrop into the frame.

    Thanks Marc.

    I have some ideas floating around in my head to make a background in a frame for some 30mm flats but it might be a plan that never sees fruition, we'll have to wait and see.

    Hi Rogger
    It is wonderful that the same now put on frame, eventually I've changed my opinion on the Flat miniatures with your work so far.

    Thank you both. Hopefully by posting my flats I'll encourage some of you who haven't painted a flat before to give them a try. They really are fun to paint.

    I second Jay's comment! Very nicely done. Like I said before, I like more muted tones.

    All the best,

    painting flats

    What a beautifully painted piece. Where might I order the piece you painted? I have only collected a couple of flats. I took a seminar with Penny Myers and tried to learn an old Dutch technique that involves painting the entire flat in shadows and highlights and then applying a number of layers of color glazes. She is a master of the process and I am only an admirer so far. Thanks for posting such a beautiful piece. Do you paint in oil or acrylics?
    Best wishes,
    Steven Lloyd

    Thank you Dan.

    Carl, thank you and there's nowt wrong with a bit of sarcasm now and then :D

    Steven, thank you. If you go to the Historex Agents site you will find them for a very good price. I'm not sure how many are left but give it a try.

    I painted this one in Winsor & Newton Galeria acrylics, a new direction for me. I actually fancy giving that technique you have described a go, it sounds interesting.
