Perry General Colbert

Posted on October 19, 2010 at 5:07 AM

I have managed to get a real painting session on the Perry Colbert figure and hpefully another good session or two later this week or next week will see him finished. Now he is proving to be a major challenge...the usual Perry problem with rough casting which makes some of the detail hard to pick out.  He has a HUGE chinstrap which very nearly ruins the whole figure but I think he just gets away with it, I think.  He is otherwese a really nice dynamically posed piece and despite the challenge he presents, I am enjoying painting him.  I do find that with Perry figures being hard to paint, they do actually make me concentrate more and try just that little bit harder on them.  So fingers crossed that I get another good go at him so I can get him all finished and posted on the site.  HB
