Yes, I can quite understand an enduring preference for enamels. They were the only paints I used for at least the first 30 years I spent pursuing this hobby, and I still do use them from time to time....most recently in fact to paint armour on a range of TYW pikemen and cavalry (a project with a very long way yet to go I hasten to add). And yes, the smell of turpentine is, if you like it, a wonderful aroma.
Nice to see more pictures from you, Handlewithcare. The leafy arbor looks like a good place to be, as does the lively tavern! The better aspects of the early C17th brought to life.
