  1. I'd still vote for it on the "Steve Dean Painting Forum's competition" (even if it has been shown on said site, before)

  2. Yeah, I should have waited a week and entered- thing is, with the forum as quiet as it is nowadays you don't know how long you will have to wait to get all the entries in :>(

    I'd hate to see the SDF decline- I really hope I'm wrong on this one!

    1. I don't think the SDF will return to its past glories, unfortunately.
      Too many of the veteran crowd has gone, and now at least 50% of the regulars are non-British; and the problem there is, possible breakdowns in communications, meaning the banter and the camaraderie is no longer present like it was in 2006-09. But they are all bringing top notch stuff (and non-British techniques and ideas) to the SDF, so I won't snub them.
      Times and people have moved on, and the SDF is still the same old forum ~ a bit like W' Foundry :)

    1. He-he- I'd struggle to get on a pony never mind get it to cross a puddle Stephan! god knows how I'd fare if I tried to mount a destrier!!

      In a world where transport was dominated by hobby horses it may well have been a bit of a shock for budding young nobles when they first climbed into the saddle of a warhorse too.
