About Matthew Snelson
Biography:
I currently live in West Sussex England with my incredibly patient wife and hatchlings.

I paint minatures to relax and for enjoyment. I have sold the odd squad herer and there but that's the extent of such a boast. I tend to paint GW or military minatures however I am looking for fresh ideas.

I enjoy all forms of music, just some more than others, same goes for art and most creative things.

I enjoy constructive feedback and will give my opinion if it;s asked for, but it's nice to be nice..right?

Dig Deep Marine!

Gaah! Just had one of those paint session that completely fails to satisfy...you know the one? Just couldn't get my eye to focus in and my brain to engage with what I was doing. Essentially I was suffering a sort of Brechtian Alienation from the Scout Squad I was painting.

Right, well I've been away from the paints for over a week now and the withdrawal has been dreadful.

I've been in holiday, that thing where you go away and have to have a good time. LIke it or not. I couldn't take my mini's and gear with me so I've just had to withdraw. I took a sci-fi book with me from the Heresey series and as I'm painting Dark Angels it had to be "Descent of Angels". This has duely inspired me, but my anxiety has got so bad recently my shakes are almost uncontrollable.

Information Overload...

This took me back to a conversation I had with my step dad. It was about developing in art, how the only way, in his opinion,

Nostalgia...it's not like it used to be!

by Matthew Snelson on 07-16-2013 at 09:49 AM
I've been posting some updated mini's, I find it helpful to respond to the score I'm getting as a way of improving the minatures. IT tells me if I'm going forward in the right direction.

But if there's one thing I know you can't move forward with out checking your mirrors...right? (okay okay cheesey I know).

So I've indulged myself in some Nostalgia. I have an album on my computer of models and minatures from the past few years as I have gradually been able to commit more
