Ken Farrar of MilMart Miniatures was at the “Sword and Lance” Show a few days ago, and kindly sent me photos of flats that appeared in the show. This first painting, awarded Gold, is called ‘Four seasons’ and was painted by Graham Wardle.
Several were awarded a bronze medal. This one of Robert E. Lee is one of them.
Ken writes: “The fifth picture shows the paintings of Roger Newsome the 30mm Leuth 157, 54mm Austrian Cuirassier, French 2e Compagnie Francaise of the Garde du Corps and a display of Swedish Cavalry, all I believe were awarded bronze. ” This piece by Roger was featured on this site just a few days ago and can be seen here.
The next photo is a close up of Roger’s French 2e Compagnie Francaise of the Garde du Corps:
This last piece deserves special attention. Roger Newsome’s daughter, Hannah, won a silver medal for her entry. If I am not mistaken, the art of flat painting is not well known, and one of the purposes of the various societies throughout the world is to promote and to encourage young people to take up the art. So, a big congratulations to Hannah Newsome. Beautiful job!
Thanks Ken for the photos and the report concerning the “Sword and Lance Show.” The photos are the next best thing to being there.
Roger Newsome bought one of Ken’s pieces at the show, went home, painted it in one week. Here are his results:
