Lost my painting mojo

I've been struggling this week to get any painting done, partly because I've been feeling ill, but partly I've not been feeling inspired. I'm currently painting a 5 member Seraphim squad and I'm struggling to get it done. I'm not sure why but it seems to have taken an inordinately long time to get even the base coat on, and I'm struggling to motivate myself to finish. Last night I did force myself to sit done and get some highlights on their armour, and actually, it was OK. I think the problem might be two fold:

-I've undercoated in white, something I don't normally do, and white is much more unforgiving than my usual black.
-I've chose a stupid armour colour that requires 12 layers to finish it. What was I thinking? Should have just gone for black.
