This painting was a commission for one of the stall-holders at a Science Fiction convention, who wanted it as a wedding anniversary gift to his wife.
The brief was a female fighter in my style. I like that kind of commission, as it does not require me to try to read my client’s mind ...
I had recently read Mary Gentle’s book Ash, set in a alternate history fifteenth century Burgundy and, hence, produced this painting.
I have an advantage when painting plate armour, as I am a medieval battlefield re-enactor; not only do I own some, but I know how it works when you are wearing it.
Until next time
