Currently I am working on getting a BFA in Costume Design.  One of the classes I am taking is Scenic painting.  Above is the piece I painted That is Trompe-l'œil
faux weathered wood barn door.  Start with a gray base then a gray wash and a pale greenish wash then sketch on with chalk to make boards then dry brush with black and white then cut in cut edges and shadow with black and black that is thinned out  them and then highlight  with a grayish white or thined white that is all there was too it 2 class periods of 50 minuets to make but more than half the class time is instruction so really only 50 mins of real painting time.  Finished today started Tuesday  most of this is a dry brush technique

This Trompe-l'œil  faux finished distressed wall With faux Lat construction with age stains from where faux paintings use to be on the faux walls.  I do not consider myself a very good painted but these are passable in my opinion.  Both of these painting are done on Masonite neither has any real depth other than the thickness of the paint.  I enjoy this class so much so maybe every now and again I will post the things I am painting in this class. Painting time is the same as the one above.  This one was done before the wood one finished last Thursday started last Tuesday.

This one starts off with a white coat of paint. followed by an ombre of yellow to orange the entire length of the piece.  Pencil in the chair rail and base board. Paint them in with whites and gray  then a wash of gray to vintage it or dirty it up. add shadow to base boards and rail.   Wash over yellow and orange area to dirty it up too wipe most off.  Then mask two areas to be missing photos mist with light coat of brown and black spray paint.  Pencil in cracks and lat boards paint cracks and lat board brown high light with white and shadow areas then finished.
