Painting Yoga

The illuminated magnifying headset thing is a real boon for painting.

It makes me realise how much of my painting recently has been a matter of educated guesswork. Suddenly I can see the model in all it's glory - or imperfections - as the case may be.

Though I do wonder if prelonged usage might lead to a trip to the chiropractor, For I find myself bending and twisting into all kinds of odd angles to marry the magnification to the light. As absurd as I look wearing the thing, I no doubt increase the absurdity by the contortions.

But no matter. If it results in my armies looking marvellous, then it is a price worth paying.
