The game is afoot!

I feel I should put in some awful joke about football here, but thankfully for you, loyal reader, the very thought disgusts me. As you will have deduced from the above picture, I have painted my first Sherlock. I am not the speediest of painters, and I have been finding more and more that I will start a project involving painting several models, get bored that I haven’t finished any of them, and wander off. Can you guess what my Napoleonic command types are up to right now? That being the case, I decided I would concentrate on just two last night. So I put The Hound of the Baskervilles (Jeremy Brett) on the TV, and settled down to paint the first Holmes and Watson.

I’m quite pleased with how they’ve come out. I didn’t go for anything fancy with these first two, obviously. The large flat areas of Holmes’ clothing could do with dome sort of pattern, so I intend that for my next. Watson should match that with a less apparent pattern, I fancy. So keep your eyes peeled for the next pair. If you’re to be a detective, you must practise your powers of observation!
