Bad Juju

Another one done. This model was going ok, but there was a key point that I was working on it that reminded me where one of my own personal strengths with painting is: Color.
You see, I was painting the wood parts of this model and using a variety of browns and yellows and it was coming along just fine. "Just fine." It was at that point that I realized it wasn't providing me the depth that I wanted, so I took an extra step and applied a dark red wash to it. Magically the wood parts came alive to me. It reminded me that experimenting and playing with color is not only something I enjoy, but it's something I'm becoming better at. I'm not great by any stretch, but I'm making progress and feeling happy, and that's all I can really ask for.
