|Nocturna Models Enchantment, work-in-progress - deciding the main soft colours|
|All three colours had to be muted for them to co-exist peacefully and not clash|
|I'm too sexy for my ... (admit it, that song is in your head now)|
Soon after I had finished laying down the main soft colours, I panicked big time and started to second guess my choice of colours. Moreover, I couldn't really find these three combinations in the colour wheel. Then I remembered a book in my collection which I had forgotten about until now - Color Index by Jim Krause. To my relief, I found that the colours I used is indeed a valid combination when used as light tints, which my soft pastel-like colours kinda resemble. But some good did come out of my impetuousness - if I had referred to the color wheel beforehand I would never have selected the colours I did. Also, I now have a new tool in my miniature painting hobby, the Color Index book.
|To my relief, the leftmost 'Light Tints' colour combination on the top row shows my choice does exist|
|Adding light pastel green into the mix, made it less Barbiesque|
Going forward, there are two important things I need to do with regards to painting the clothes worn by the Nocturna Models Enchantment figure. Firstly, I will have to place more of the three main soft colours at strategic locations on the miniature to ensure they complement each other well. Secondly, I will have to decided on a neutral colour I can use to tie the whole piece together. This colour will also be sourced from the many costumes worn by Emilia Clarke when dressed as Daenerys Targayen.
|Next up, the three main soft colours will be strategically placed at other parts of the miniature ...|
|... and a suitable neutral colour will be added to tie everything together|
This has been an unproductive week hobby wise. My son came down with high fever so I dropped everything hobby-related to take care of his illness. He is recovering now so I should be able to get more painting done soon. That is unless I am coming down with the bug he had ... perish the thought!
