PostSubject: NEW ISANDLWANA PAINTING "SAVE THE GUNS"   Fri Jan 04, 2013 12:05 pm

Hi and Happy New Year to all members. I have just finished my first Zulu War painting of a scene from the Battle of Isandlwana entitled "Save the Guns" and just wanted to get members opinions on the picture and if anybody would be interested in purchasing a copy to let me know either via the forum or by email paul.kate64@yahoo.co.uk. I want to just get some idea of how many to get printed before paying out loads of money.
Many Thanks
Paul

Excellent colour, and detail.

Just one question. But I could be wrong. The cuffs on the 24th uniforms should they all be green, or were some blue.. The Dummerboy seems to have one of each.

Hi Dave thanks for your comments. I of course know they should be green however the green I used seems to have taken on a blue shade when dry. This is a small adjustment I have to make before going to print.

I forgot to mention the price of a colour print 16.5 x 11 inches will be £29 each. That includes vat and postage.
Many Thanks
Paul

PostSubject: WELL SPOTTED   Fri Jan 04, 2013 5:35 pm

Well done The 1st Lt
Well spotted they are of course the range of Zulu war figures from Britains. I contacted the company and said could I use their figures for a painting and this is the result Glad you like it. I'm hoping Britains will like it too I am sending them a copy in the hope they may use it to advertise their range.
