In Bukhara, the main nationality - Uzbek.

Lovely, but what a nightmare to paint. I wish there was an app into which you could feed a an image and it would spit out a convincing representation that you could paint on a 28mm fig.

When I give coats like these a go I start by looking at them at arm lengths distance and squint, trying to capture the overall impression of colours and patterns. It seldom does the trick though.
