311. Saloon

Drawing weathered wood is hard. I learned a lot of things I should not do. The Pentell black permanent marker is not suited to draw black areas. It gives a nasty shine. Also applying multiple washes erases the woodgrain details I worked on so hard with a 0.05 Micron marker. That was partially caused by mixing my colors. I started out with three little blobs of paint to combine (yellow, ocre, burnt sepia) but due to overenthousiastic painting they got mixed up too much and the right door had a slightly different hue. Next time I will mix them in different areas and not all in the same spot.

Anyway, come in. Have a couple of beers, but leave your horse outside…
