One day late compared to what i wrote, sorry for this. Time to explain something about this diorama: i want to create some light effect a bit comparable to the one I did on Koktebel -which means, a sundown, which will tint all the colours from one specific angle. The picture below is pretty carricatural of course as the '"other'" side of the gun is certainly as a work in progress state, but yet, most of the side that won't be bathed by the sun will appear *a lot* darker, with very few high highlights etc. I have been sitting in my garden quite a bit these past days, looking at what the sun was doing at sundown, and it certainly tints the green in a very beautiful shade. Oh well, maybe it will end in the dustbin too. that won't be very easy to paint each element according to the position of the sun, and to set the shadows of each object according to all the other objects etc etc.. But then I could also do the same diorama over and over again, but I won't :) btw, I have been adding a *new* diorama in the galleries, it's called '"The Abbey'", and is from 1994/1995..
