I just love painting these little plastic knight models (and can't resist buying them whenever I see them). Not only do they let the playful, whimsical side of my personality come out, but they also let me continue exploring some of the painterly issues I'm interested in; effects of brilliantly lit objects on dark backgrounds, motion in the still life, etc. Now sooner or later I need to get around to painting the model of the jousting knight on horseback.
