2nd Pennsylvania





Back in late June I had decided to take a brief break from the Hessians to produce a couple American regiments in time for July 4th. One thing led to another and I've just finally finished the second regiment, the 2nd Pennsylvania. Painting this unit in this manner was inspired as always by Giles over at Tarleton's Quarter.
The flag was a minor modification of one offered and designed by Clarence over at Quindia Studios. He releases a new flag every week in what he has termed "Flag Monday"...some great stuff.

I'm not sure where I am at with my painting style. At times I feel like I'm going backwards in quality. I'll continue to experiment and attempt to find my groove, as they say. I'm considering trying a higher contrast style or maybe a speed painting style as I believe both speed and contrast are lacking from my work.

I've been a bit lacking lately in making the rounds to all my favorite blogs out there, but there has been some great content from what I have seen and as always thanks for all the kind comments here.

  2. Wow, what an impressive unit! Don't think too hard about your painting style - that's a top notch job and well worth the effort!

  3. Excellent painting, as Sire Godfrey said, "that's top notch painting". Looks to me you've already found your groove, even if you don't already know it!! Love the light blue you've used and the other different colours to give it a ramshackle look.

  7. They look good to me. I especially like the different colored waistcoats. I might have to borrow that idea.

  8. I've been rather remiss at blog-visiting as well! I can't see anything wrong with these either, IG; they look fantastic. I like the way you've chosen figures with hats and folded down tricornes, which creates a distinctive look. Clarence's flag sets them all off perfectly. Top notch work!

    Best wishes
