The Return of PaintBlog II

Well, after being absent from PaintBlog II for a couple of weeks, I decided to see if I could do something with it. Could I do anything with it? The answer, surpisingly, is yes, but not much. Mostly little ticks of detail without a change in overall direction. None the less, I do like the direction we’re heading with it.

I’m going to present a series of six detail shots first, then finish up with the overall shot. Some of the detail–the latter ones, of course–are a little darker than I like, but one can’t have everything.

Making one plank look like weathered stone:

Doing the same for another plank:

Changing the pole to a more wooden appearance, separating the ladder from it, and joining the ladder to a plank above it:

The top of the red area. You knew I was going to do something like this, didn’t you?

Well, you certainly knew I was going to do something like this. Admit it, now.

Finally, highlights on the metal of the ladder. This definitely needs some more work. Is it both shiney and corroded, or badly made metal, or badly painted painting? Viewer’s choice! Be sure to hand your ballots in by Wednesday.

And here we go with how the canvas looks as of today, at the end of January:

The image is still coming along nicely, I think, but it definitely lacks something; I think that something is drama. We’ll have to wait to see if anything dramatic occurs. It’s a lot like life, isn’t it?
