The last photo was painted over a heavier coating of plaster. When I first started to apply the paint it looked like I was going over tree bark. Kind of neat, but got lost in the additional layers of paint. My goal is to go back and try the heavy coating again, but focus on less paint. Will see how it all turns out. Today I'll be working in the new studio,starting to clean it and get ready for painting.
Have a great weekend.
