50 Challenge update
Work is progressing on my small 50cm x 50cm dockside shunting scene. As I hinted in a previous post I have decided to attempt to do the whole scene in greyscale ! The buildings are based on Bilteezee sheets which have been scanned onto the computer and then converted to grayscale. I tried just scanning in black and white but the result was too harsh. The scans were then printed out on A4 computer labels, stuck to card and the buildings constructed. When it comes to painting I have realised that doing it in greyscale is more challenging than I thought. The back scene is a standard PECO backscene again scanned and changed to greyscale . The following photos show where I am up to. The front edge of the quay, the water and the boat are still to be done as is most of the detailing. Also there is a point that needs repair!!!
The layout is to be called “50 x 50 Shades of Grey.” Groan groan!
