These are a few days in to the process and try as I might I still cannot take a decent photograph.
What you see here is ‘contrast major’ – the transitions between the whites are not as stark as they look here and frankly I am disappointed at not being able to show you what they really look like. I am really pleased with the guys in white even though there is a bit of work to do.
Standard poles are now fixed in – I don’t know why I didn’t do this initially.
I have found a couple of really good ideas for flags – one definitely will be scene from an allegorical woodcut and the other might include pigs to which I will add a coat of arms.I will have to tone down the shadows of the white figures. The second standard bearer will be red and blue and the bloke with the sword I am not so sure about.
