A change from the advertised, 11 – Brick Wall
The best laid plans of mice and men… and all that. Last week I promised to bring you a brick wall painting, and that I have. Complete in all its crumbling finery.
The trouble is, I was supposed to be doing a tower!
I got completely carried away last week before I thought to check the schedule. Low and behold I have the brick wall down for week 12, I feel some juggling may occur over the next few weeks as I have no tower to do yet and I really have to play catch up this week. Otherwise I’m going to run out of year, and that won’t do.
So here’s Painting #11 Brick wall as a work in progress.
Looking at a straight wall seemed a bit bland so I decided to do a corner rather than facing the wall full on.
A bit of roof tiling and gutter may have slipped in as well. Can’t think how that happened!
The picture was taken under artificial light so has a distinct orange glow reminiscent of orange street lights. Rather apt considering.
Here’s the finished painting.
Managed to add some more colours and lose the orange glow. Looking at it now, I wish I’d added some more. Like a sap green or yellow ocre.
