These pictures are all from yesterday's effort.
First I painted in some rivets.
Without shadows or effects they just sort of appear to be floating unanchored to the wall.
I used a warm brown which I hope will "pop" against the backdrop of the blue.
I've got electrician's currently diddling around in the bathroom so I am on hold presently, waiting for them to leave.
Yesterday, I added a bit of texture to the floating rivets .
This part is fun and free flowing.
I let the painting take me where it will.
Today I will paint in the base coat of the steel (or pewter or metal or bronze or whatever it looks like) and I think for that I am going to use a real paint brush, instead of my trusty Iwata Eclipse airbrush.
Here is a detail shot of the rivets.
Happy Friday everyone!
