Ian's Art. Mona

Hello every one, welcome to another art stage.

Adding the lining to the loco -

This 'll take a steady hand and a good amount of patience and a good fine brush there are two lots of lining to do. Firstly, I'll do white lines on the loco water tank side, cab side and cab rear end. Once painted in I'll use black paint painting in between the white lines. There 'll just be the cylinder to do by the front buffer beam once I've worked on this; also coal bunker side of cab and the end of front buffer beam to do.


But as I expected there were problems with adding the lining on the rear cab especially around the windows....one thing I am annoyed about is that I didn't use a better canvas as this one feels it isn't staying taut and trying to do straight lines is much harder during this stage. I've even doubted weather I would even finish the canvas as the first lining attempt looked so off course; especially a photo of this canvas which would be no use for the blog...but I started to use a slightly bigger brush for the white lining and "TOUCH WOOD" it might have save the day.


As for feeling like a kid in a candy shop with this canvas Gillian I feel it is not quite so yet but I'm sure once done I'll feel that way...I hope (:


Thank you all again for your likes and comments your support is much appreciated.


See you all soon,

Ian.
