One of the great joys of VBCW is that you can let your imagination loose. So with that in mind Matt did ask me to paint these two figures as Jeeves and Wooster from the PD Woodhouse series of novels (And the Fry and Laurie TV series of course!). Needless to say Bertie Wooster is the one in yellow socks! I have tried to keep the colours as close to the TV series as the figures would allow. Bertie usually wears a grey suit in town and tweed when in the country, Jeeves clothing does not change!
One has to wonder what kind of shenanigans Mr Wooster will get involved in and what Jeeves will be able to extract him from. Will there be an "Unwanted love interest?" Some woman being engaged to the young sir. (IT seems to happen a lot!) Maybe Madeline "the stars are God's daisy chains" Bassett, or Stephanie "Stiffy" Byng, or Lady Florence Craye or Daphne Dolores Morehead or from the TV series Honoria Glossop a slightly more formidable female (and perhaps my favourite!) Or just maybe there will be a new one. But whatever happens we all know that Jeeves with a Lewis gun will overcome any obslical in the last scene!
A thoughouly enjoyable pair to paint and I shall have to get a few female characters just to provide a plot. And Maybe a "Gussy" Fink-Nottle as well just to make the plot thicker!
Thanks for looking today. Next post on Tuesday. Have a good weekend and see you soon, (I hope) Cheers Clint
