Sometimes all I want to do is to Zen out when painting. For this I have found that batch-painting a large unit of whatever is a good way to reach the flow state where the mind is disengaged.

I have a really nice black cloaked figure lined up for […]Read More Ringwraiths; or playing around with colours for black cloaks
