Slowly, But Surely.....
I have the first coats of paint on the slate. More to go. And then the Prismacolor pencils and mat varnish. I had to come back and clarify! I went back to egg carton for the slate. The terra cotta tile was too smooth and I wanted a random pattern.
I either have to move the house to a higher table or find a shorter place to sit. I was working sideways until my neck started getting stiff.
I want the rocks on this house to look a bit dark and dreary.
So far, so good.
I am thinking of sacrificing the TV and moving to the kitchen counter or table. I need someplace eye level.
These photos look like two different stone types. They are actually pretty much the same color. The lighting is just different.
I need to get back to work. This is one of those things that is going to take longer than I think.
I go at this like I was doing a painting of a wall and not just painting a wall. Each stone is painted one at a time. Slowly, but surely...
See you tomorrow.
