A big welcome to the BFFS Penny, instead of the normal "ask if you need help with painting" I think we'll be asking you for advice  ;D

no doubt that with the lightening yu have choosen, Penny, the magic sword (Excalibur?) must diffuse a brillant light on the horse and bottom of Arthur's body !!!
Very promissing interpretation I woud also have choosen myself , when I bought the flat!
 
Three questions on your shadows technique=
1) What colours are you using ?  it is a cold tone (sepia; blue black, ...) or a mix?
2) Would it be also acceptable to use two colours, sepia for warm tones and indigo for cold tones if both are present after? to keep the temperature of the final colours) or should this undercoating be a single tone?
3) How to manage colours like yellow, quite transparent colours with modern pigments with such tones?

Hi Penny,

This is looking exceptional, will be interesting to see the colours you will be using.

Lady of the Lake and Merlin are now available, anyone who wants one can PM me.

We will very shortly be getting Guenivere engraved, and should be available hopefully in the new year. On my return from Monte Sans Savino, I will organise this with me mate Brian ;)

(Photo of drawing available soon )

Hi Nick! I look forward to seeing the new figures. I will want them all I am sure. Cheers!

Hello again Thank you for all of the information. I will join up this evening...
I have decided I am complete on the underpainting of this flat so here is the formal Nikon portrait instead of a crummy phone picture. Hoping to start coloring this right away. I will post photos as it progresses with the color glazing.
Cheers!

Thank You Marko! I love the Lady of the Lake. Who is selling this for you? Oh I see a link on a new comment... I must have the complete set. Like I need more flats!
I also have a question about membership. If I join and pay now is this good for a year or pro-rated?
Thanks for your help...
Hannibal, I am going to try to force the lighting from the sword. I thought this would make it different from any others I have seen.
Thank you for the compliments!

Ah, I forgot about the venerable Merlin and the young Arthur has been issued as well.

This start looks absolutely fantastic !  in this size ....
I am now comparing the light study with Nick's interpretation of the flat, it is very interesting and a exciting challenge to be followed-up.

Very nice start Penny, this should be interesting.

P.S. There is an issue with Windows that sometimes displays pictures sideways.  No biggie, I corrected it.
P.P.S. The other available in this series is Arthur & Lady of the Lake which looks like a challenging figure, i.e. right up your alley...
