Making time to paint.

I talked in my my last post about how I'm trying to improve how I keep track of my painting and about how I want to try and start painting more than I buy. This time, I'm going to talk about how I actually intend to go about doing this.

Being on night shifts for 5 or 6 nights a week doesn't exactly lend itself to getting my hobby done, but I've come up with a simple plan to keep things moving nicely.

Every day, either before or after work, I'll try and sit down and paint for at least half an hour.

 I'll be aiming to complete a stage each time, whether it's a layer on a model or a wash, or anything else that needs doing. The theory is that over time, I'll still be making progress.

I'm starting this when I get back from work tomorrow. Let's see if this actually works!


  1. Right now I am finding it so hard to find time to paint my Death Guard. Between work, girlfriend and other things I like to do I find it so hard to make the time.

  2. That's been exactly my problem. I've got so much going on, hobby's taken a back seat for a while.

    I figure I can spare 20-30 minutes a day though. It helps me relax before or after work too, which is always a plus.

    It's good just to get that little bit of time entirely to myself every day.
