The view from my hotel room on Sunday morning - lovely sunshine, hardly any wind
Leaning out a little to see out to my left
Such a shame the weather didn't stay like that. By Sunday afternoon the wind had picked up and the weather kept switching between sunshine and piddling down.
I did get a bit more painting done - the jackets (Dark Prussian Blue for one regiment, Hull Red for the other). Although the lighting in the hall would have been OK for painting, the space was rather cramped, so painting during conference sessions turned out not to be an option. I did the jackets on the Monday and Tuesday mornings between breakfast and heading out to the conference - luckily the Hilton Metropole is practically next door to the conference centre, so I could leave at 9.20am and easily be in my seat in time for the 9.30 start.
So, a quick WIP pic so you can see their current state:
While I was doing the jackets I did spot a few patches on the breeches which I'd missed. I'll have to pick those up when I do the hats.
