Red Box Games' Myrianna: an experiment in wet blending

I'm currently enjoying my holiday with my family at the seaside. I planned to work a bit more on the reviews I promised, but the internet connection we have here is really terrible.

But anyway I did quite some miniature painting already, for the first time in 3 months! I'm working where I left off: Red Box Games. Did some more work on Yrsa and The Keeper, and started on Myrianna, the figure you see below.

I decided to experiment with a technique I never really used before: wet blending. For those who don't know this method: it's basically mixing your shades and highlights on the figure itself. By doing this your blends will be very smooth, but it's a hard technique to master. But I feel I am improving very rapidly so maybe this will be the painting method I will use in the future.

So far I did the face and the back of the cloak. ..

great work! The blending looks very smooth, keep up it up. I just picked up my painting after a few month absence too and I don't know about you, but the first few days were rough!
