It has been a thoroughly splendid day here in the South East of England, made all the more enjoyable for spending it with my good friend the 'Provost Marshal'. We decided to take in the Euro Miniature Expo in Folkestone. After a fortifying breakfast we made our way to the venue and immersed ourselves in the variety of exquisitely painted miniatures that varied greatly in genre in scale. This is the first time that I have been to the show since it has had a change of sponsorship. I think it would be fair to say that it was down on both entries and traders, but still retained a quality that make it a great day out.
Below, then, are just some of the examples of the work that caught my eye. Whilst I marvel at the amazing brushwork and the sheer impossibility of the skill on display, I find it so inspiring to see these pieces. There might have been fewer examples on display, but my word they were impressive!
