Mark Dance’s figure painting

My friend Mark Dance is enjoying the sunshine at their cottage in Ontario this month (summer here in BC has been cool and wet).  Before he left, he asked if he could take some of my A.C.Stadden figures to have a go at painting them.  Knowing that before Mark got serious about model railroading, he was into painting miniature figures, it took me about a nanosecond to agree.

The results are, I think you’ll agree, stunning.

Natural light and the camera are the harshest of critics, but these little people look beautifully lifelike. Here on the web page, you’re viewing them super-sized; notice the Testor’s bottles and recall the true size of these little gems.

Mark is planning to do a figure-painting clinic at the Railway Modellers’ Meet of BC this fall.  I can’t wait to hear what he has to say.
