One day back at the limning (thats miniature-painting to you) station under our belts, and a session of hothousing with our leader Aunt Kate has reminded us of what everything's called - from the smalt (blue) to the Brazil wood (gingery). Other activities undertaken on day one included dancing the Earl of Essex on the forecourt and a lengthy costume discussion with two visitors, thanks to the provocation of Mary's splendid slashed wool pin-on sleeves (mine are delayed at the 'tailor's). Hopefully a picture of those will follow....
No regrets about the hiring of the HD Varicam for 'much coin' as they say in 1578 - our cameraman gave us a brief glimpse of its richness on the monitor and it's as exquisite as those sleeves....
