The gravestone on the left in the above photo was primed with white. The green didn't go over it evenly, but that worked out. Grass isn't uniformly one shade of green. I'm happy with how the paint came out. The middle one, with grey primer, also had similar results. The right-most grave, painted over black primer, has a different outcome that I'm not so sure about. However, for the first time I've painted minis in a while, this came out well.
Armed with satisfaction, I decided to try painting another mini, this time a shark from WizKids. I went with the mini because the number of colours would be low, the mini isn't complicated, and is large enough to see without taking off my glasses for close up work.

I focused on the dorsal side to start. Long brushstrokes, no unusual creases. Nice and simple. I also painted the dorsal fin poking out of the water.
