Well as the Broadside Show is a single week away now I have been progressing my boards a little. But only a little. To that end I have based the trees up and painted the bases. A very simple process of painting the bases then sprinkling them with sand and then another coat of paint to seal then again. I placed them on my Salute yellow carrier bag while drying.
And once dry I placed a few on the board to see if they would look right. Given that I have eight boards and 50 trees I think a ratio of 6 trees to a board will be about right. That should be enough to make it clear that there are some and yet not too cluttered to hinder movement and get in the way. As I will leave the placement of the trees to other people in the club I have no idea how sensible they will be. But scattered palm trees will work best I think.
Later today I will need to go to B+Q and get my final piece for Broadside this year. And with luck I will get that piece finished as well. (Before the show, not all done today although I do expect to start it.)
Sorry there is not too much on the paint table at the moment as I am considering what I will need to buy at Broadside this year. I only have a few wants, needs and desires at present so not expecting to start anything really new just before the show as I am bound to get a few things that I did not KNOW I really needed and will therefore make my life complete (until I see something else that is.) So I think it will be a lazy week on the brushes for me.
All the Best, and take care.
