This is the beginning of an adventure, a new project commission. It has proved to be a wonderful challenge to the imagination as well as figuring out how to construct it.
Perhaps another peak inside the lump. No it is not a tea cosy, but I think the stonework might be a good clue.
Have you guessed yet? This picture below might help too: note the essential cup of coffee to kick start the process.
Now the mystery is revealed. This lump is going to be a tunnel for a train set.
So far the tunnel is nearly done, it is under a mountain range. Perspective had to change from the tunnel sides, which go off to distant peaks, and the tunnel entrance that presents a different scale of view. This was rather tricky and is not perfect. I would rather re-scale the bricks on the arches but time is of the essence now and I have to learn not to be too finicky.
So here it is almost done and my first time using needle felt to create a “painting”, loving this technique a lot.
