Nassim is asking:

"Hi Roman. 
Hope you're fine. May I ask you something /an advice ? 
On the next piece I'm working on, I'd like to paint a nice turquoise cloth. Exactely like the cloth on the head of the last Pirate bust of Fer miniatures

My problem is, I can't find the base/light and shadow to use. Could you tell me what color you would use to get such a color ? It would be very nice ! I join you a pic of the bust and hope you could help me. No pbm if not, thanks in advance"

Roman's answer:
Hey Nassim, sure. Well I 'd say it is a tourquoise but with a little more green in it. It also has a tiny drop of yellow to it. So if you want to mix the same basecolor I would take a tourqoiuse and add a bright green to it. A bright green that looks so bright because of the amount of yellow in it. Understood what I mean? This would be my base color. For shadows - looking at the photos I would just add a tiny drop of black to my basetone. Highlights are rare too, I would just go with a tiny drop of yellow to the basetone and maybe later on a tiny drop of white to it for final highlights on edges.

Ralf is asking:

"Hey Roman, 
how do you prepare yourself for miniature shows like Monte San Savino?"

Roman's answer:

Well, I love to go there. That is the best preparation for it. I am looking forward to meet many friends and make new ones there. I mainly go there to enjoy time with people and if time allows have a look on all these great miniatures. I love to talk about painting, ideas and projects and enjoy such a trip very much.

Paintingwise, like concerning miniatures I do not prepare myself pretty much. In the past years I sadly wasn't able to dive deep into a big project that is aimed to be rocking the competiton. I just go there with the stuff I have ready and do not mind too much if the models I bring win something or not. That makes the trip very easy for me. No pressure at all. I am missing to work on a big idea and I am looking forward to do this in the future again.
