Saint Anna – Nubian fresco dating from the 8th to the first half of the 9th century, made with tempera on mud plaster in al secco technique. An anonymous work was found at the Faras Cathedral in former Nubia, Sudan today.
Inspired by a painter The Mad Hamster’s blog I decided to give myself a try and painting something completely new. Basically a simple freehand on a slice of onyx stone.
another wonderful weekend in Bavaria with miniatures in background. This time 3. Fürstenfelder Modellbautage 2017 near Munich -http://www.fuerstenfelder-modellbautage.de
Apart from models, figures, traditional beer, precels and weißwürst there were lots of additional activities for children! Yes, this event concentrates not only on nerds but mostly on young hobby adepts. There were many attractions for them like:
fuerstenfelder-modellbautageBricking Bavaria with their LEGOs and place for children to create things on their own.
Riding on a real steam train
And of course the show mit many plastic models and some miniatures. There could have been more entries in the contest, but you had to pay 2€ for every miniature you enter … Why limit the people who want to enter more? I always thought the more entries, the more everyone should be happy. Strange logic to me.
Although a small event me and my family had great time. You can see the organizers have concentrated themselves on attracting younger people with the hobby.
