I apologise to those of you who are much better that I at this sort of thing, but what have I learned?
- Well, I'm not going to win prizes for either photography or my painting.
- I have to practice both.
- The camera is a useful painting tool - it picks up all sorts of errors that I didn't with my glass.
- I probably need my eyes testing and new glasses - this might help with detail and depth perception.
- My hands still shake like nobodies' business.
- Everything is more fun with dinosaurs!

The white it terrible. The Mad Scientist (killer robots, for the inventing of) started off with a black lab-coat, but The Wife persuaded me to re-paint it. I preferred the black. The Skipper appears to be glossy here, but isn't in the flesh.
I've also been experimenting with different basing. I don't thing the scientist works at all...
Scale-wise, I think my 10p dinosaur works quite well. I'm not sure about picking out the rivets on the Steam Contraption Thingie though.
Today I'm not to paint anything smaller than a shed!
