Reinventing The Wheel

I'm still plodding along with the trolls. Aside from everyday life eating into my painting time, I'm still learning how best to use acrylic paints. It's a big change from enamels. At times I feel as though I'm making progress and at other times I wonder if I should find a new hobby.

My "style", such as it is, seems to consist of a demolition derby of techniques: drybrushing, washes, layering, etc.. In particular, layering seems to be an important skill to master. I used it on the nose and tongue of the mini pictured here and was pleased with the results.

Both trolls are almost finished at this point. All that remains is touch-ups and varnishing. To borrow an old movie line, "I shall endeavor to persevere."
