Forte San Antonio do Estoril


Time for painting has been hard to come by lately, so this one proceeded for a long time in five to ten minute intervals.  These old coastal forts are difficult to paint from ground level, because they are very often laid out in a star shape, or some other plan that may allow overlapping fields of fire for defensive guns, but makes for difficult visualization.  You can view this one from above by typing these coordinates into Google Earth: 22 34 54.01n 44 13 06.49e
