Fergus received some colour this weekend as did the two piers holding up his observation dock.
The painting is done with acrylic paints. I put on several washes, or light coats of colour so that Fergus’ coat didn’t look too uniform with hard lines where the colouring would have stopped and started.
I also like the way that the piers turned out. Again, several acrylic washes followed by some dry-brush highlighting. I hope that you can see the water line on the piers…I thought that would be a nice touch.
All of the acrylics get a coat of urethane to seal and deepen the colours.
I’m enjoying this carving and will be sad when it’s finished.
