Canvas backs all painted

Posted on January 26, 2015


I decided that trying to work out options for painted roads and rivers was a mistake, and took advantage of the continued fine weather to finish the paint on all three canvas backs.

All three have the same colours: the faded-khaki-green I mentioned as base, then stippling (using a paint-dampened sponge) with a greener version, then a browner version. The two different colours are created simply by adding green poster paint to the original acrylic, then burnt umber poster paint to the remains of that mix.

They are now ready for any side-compartments, in the case of the longest version, or to have material cladding on their sides.
