At last, our annual painting project of the British Flat FIgure Society came to an end. Nearly every year, or at least we try to, there is a non competitive choice of one figure of variable subject and scale that is distributed among the interested members of the Society who each of us makes his/her own interpetation of how this figure shoudl be painted.
It's is very interesting comparing the final results since, as many wise painters have said, there are a thousand painting techniques from a thousand artists. Each makes his/her own interpetation, according to his/her likes and preferences, painting style, painitng medium used and so on.
For 2007, a single 30mm figure from the Golbergs was chosen, of a mounted noble lady and a peasant or groom driving the horse taken from a medieval hunting party scene. Sixteen people responded to the call but we hope this number increases next year. So here is the link that will direct you to the proper section in the Society's gallery. Take a moment to observe the different painting schemes from the almost toy soldier-like appearance to the most "sophisticated" heavy shadowed-highlighted painting.
