There's nothing wrong with my eyes; my arms are just too short!
I've been short sighted since the age of 12 but with my glasses I've had 20/20 vision, close or at distance. Until recently, that is! After an unproductive (figure painting-wise) year, I've noticed that after a fairly long break where I didn't put brush to ...

Refurbishment of 2nd Division #2 - 28th or 34th Regiment of Foot
"O'er the hills and o'er the main Through Flanders, Portugal and Spain. King George commands and we obey Over the hills and far away." These wonderful figures from Hagen miniatures  are full of character. They are battle-weary old campaigners in tattered un...

Refurbishment of 2nd Divison #1 - 92nd Foot (Gordon Highlanders)
