Hi Folks and Folkettes!
Well, I got down to Brighton late yesterday afternoon hot, tired and sweaty from my journey. I then discovered a couple of technical hitches that mean you won't get to see any pretty pics until I get back home on Wednesday.
1. My netbook which I haven't used for a year or so refused to switch on (I'd forgotten to check it before leaving). That means I can't do any long posts or edit pics as I'll only have short bursts on computers in the internet cafes at the conference centre and in the hotel.
2. I forgot the USB cable to connect my camera to a PC to upload pics.
I did do some painting last night in my room. Unfortunately the room's lights are pretty crap so it was difficult to see details - this meant I could only do pretty basic stuff, the stockings and breeches for the musketeers.
After my union's delegation meeting this morning, I headed back up to my room and did a bit more painting (I've got a sea-view room and the daylight was really good for painting). I got the hair, shoes and boots done on the musketeers. I also did a little bit on the command figures - hair, hats, shoes, boots and gloves that hadn't already been painted.
I'll be heading into the first conference session in a while (4-7pm - what an awful timeslot). I've brought the figures, some paints and he kit with me so I'll see what the lighting is like for painting in the conference hall. If the lighting is crap I may have to abandon my plan of painting during conference sessions and instead get a little bit done between breakfast and heading off for the morning sessions.
