Lego Minifigures 10: "Climber - K"
The map he's standing on is a new element in this series. It is a real map - an Ordnance Survey leisure map, naturally - but can you guess the location? I haven't rendered the map enormously accurately - I don't think the painting requires it, and, to be honest, I wasn't using a fine enough brush*. But you might be able to guess, especially if I tell you that the "K" is a clue. And that it's in England. I'll put the answer in a comment tomorrow.
Acrylic on canvas, 7 x 7 cm
*I have been using a 3 (standard length) and a 1 (rigger) on this series. I do own a 00000 brush (that's really fine), but I don't want to start getting too finicky. Incidentally, a rigger is a brush with extra long hair (I hesitate to use the word bristles, because these are soft brushes - nylon, I think; they're from the Daler-Rowney Dalon range). It is called a rigger because it is ideal for painting the rigging of a sailing ship.
