Color brings Charles to life!

This morning I started in on the base colors for the Town Crier's Whiskey sign. I was using Modern Master's Scenic paints which have a very high pigment content. This means they covered extremely well. The paint is thick and creamy, a lot like the acrylics I used to get in tubes when I did fine art. I worked with a limited pallet, mixing colors and blending as I went. I would concentrate on the top part, the pictorial for now as I tend to splash paint around as I work. This way I could paint madly without worry of drips below.

Charles, (the name works for me) the town crier came together quickly. The paint is a bit flat yet but that will be remedied as I start in on the glazes when these colors are dry, most likely later this afternoon. Stay tuned...
