This weeks 28mm figure is from Reaper and goes by the name of Oriana, Grey Maiden. Despite the colour in her title I went for green as the dominant colour and in so doing ended up with a figure I really do not like.
In truth I did not like my colour choice right from the start and should have stripped it down and started over but, for no other reason than laziness, I couldn’t be arsed to do so. Interestingly I feel the same way about another figure I have started that is sat on the side of my desk. I’m not entirely sure why this is but I am very much inclined to blame it on Covid and the lockdown. I’m not looking to make excuses but I have pretty much been nowhere and done nothing since early March and mentally I think it is now taking its toll. I’m not concerned about going out just cannot be arsed to do so. Where is there to go when everything is shut down anyway?
More and more the least little thing is now becoming an effort and I am sorry to say that I fear the same can now be said for modelling and painting. I’m loath to take a break from painting or from the blog as I worry I wont start up again if I do. The thing is I usually do some research and look at images of other peoples work all of which helps to determine what I do. This however requires effort that I am not putting in and the results as far as I am concerned speak for themselves. Hopefully the forced break induced by Christmas and family in attendance will provide the opportunity to rekindle my enthusiasm, that and the dawning of 2021.
Apologies for the miserable post!
