I've just returned from a two-day workshop with Bohun , run by Journeyman Miniatures . The focus was true metallic metals and textures - whether it be metal, skin or fabric. What a blast. It's the first course I've been on where we've started and completed a figure in the time alloted. Usually the focus is studying a technique, rather than pushing to completion. Delighted this one was different - as it's nice to have a change of pace like that. I'd say painting the freehand on the shoulder was the single most complicated miniature-related painting I've attempted ... and it only took an hour. A huge confidence boost to be able to achieve a result like this. (okay, so it's not perfectly circular, and a lot of the lines are wobbly - but I'm fine with that, so you can be too) This is probably the best result I've ever achieved on a figure and I'm delighted. Now to lie down and let my brain recover.
