Yes it comes to us all. AND I AM CURRENTLY in the painting Doll Drums!
Which is not to say I have stopped, but is to say I have slowed down considerably!
So slow in fact that I have only managed to get 1 British officer of the colonial period finished. Many if not most will be looking and saying that is the wrong shade of blue it should be darker. And yes Cavalry and artillery officers should be in a darker blue.
However those attached to the Natal Native Light horse units wore sky blue and that did get faded in the African sun. And I think he's a pretty good match for the African sky in the Picture.Or if you do not like that explanation just assume it id the uniform colour of Her Majesties Royal Navy Landship Squadron.
Thanks for looking today I will try to get more done and quickly for the next scheduled post on Sunday.
All the Best Clint
