Faux stonework finish: before and after


I'm saying I'm done, even though there will very likely be some more detail work and touching up in the future.

Faux stone wall

 Here's a section of the retaining wall and concrete outbuilding that I am nearly done painting. I'll be going back to work on it tonight.

Pen and ink house portrait

Here's my most recent completed house portrait (and a detail), ink on Bristol paper.  The size is 11 x 15.

Faux stone work

I've been working at a school on painting a concrete wall to match the building's stonework.  It was bare white before; here are some photos of how it looks after I primed it and filled in most of the faux stones.  I still have a lot of work to do.  There are still large areas of plain gray primer, and then I have to paint in the mortar and figure out how to put in some shading and color gradations.  I also plan to put in some detail work.

I estimate this at being a little under 700 square feet, so it's far and away the largest art(-ish) project I've worked on.

House drawing in progress

 It still requires a lot of shading, and it's not a very good photo, but here it is anyway: the current house portrait I am working on.  It's a very pretty house.  I hope to have it done within the next week.
