So here we go with finishi
Please visit my new website
I have a new website at www.distant-shores.com its aim is to gather all the nature centered websites I have been doing those past few months,
This is a bit lame, but I need to change the server of this site which is so slooow, and also to reactivate cdiorama.com
So here is the second part
I finished the Gökçedag diorama a few weeks ago! That was the mystery diorama, no trace in the blog :)
See more pictures here : Gökçedag
Painting the boat was the usual wet on wet technique, complete with (very few) Mig pigments, I did it in quite a short time compared to the wall bit. That's a mostly gallery post but there is a trick after one or 2 pictures
So have a look at the picrture and what do you notice? left side is grey, right side is yellow, how does it come? that's not only because the outdoor line came from the right, no, it's because *in my diorama, the light will come from the front*. Actually, the boat will be oblique relative to the scene. So thanks to my airbrush and a few hours of cork I managed to recreate this effect of light. remember that for me a diorama must come with its own light embedded and not rely on external sources of light to work..
That is most visible on the bellow picture
And now here is a preview of the diorama. That's right, it just needs a few groundwork as well as painting my wife and last but not least, do a good sea!
Products heads up
I was sent that Pebeo Cernes Relief product some time agio and liked it straight away. Its fine tip allows me to make joints between the stuff i embbed in water and the stuff itself like my graves here.
It dries just like regular glossy Acrylic gel that you can find in art shops or Valejo's Water Effect (which is exactly the same stuff)
The reason I use those flex-pad instead of other solutions is seen here: I have been owning the same since 4 years and even though mine are in bad shape they still work alright. I love the "blade tip" which allows to sand in the crevices
That's a hobby sort of posting. I recently bought Uschi van der Rosten's metalic pigments and well, I used to know Alex before he was Uschi you see and this kind of posts can't do him wrong.
