One of Jims saw milling buddies makes wooden buoys and on a visit last year he brought one for me. Not long after, I decided it needed some paint, so out came the paint brushes and here it was after my first round of painting.
It was fine. It still looked kinda new and I wasn’t sure how it would take stain so thats how it stayed.
Unable to leave things alone, I decided to revisit the buoy. This time I decided to paint the whole thing. Before I could get to the fun stuff, I had to put a coat of white on.
Then I traced each side of the buoy onto white paper so I could map out what I wanted to paint. I planned on a continuous scene that would wrap all the way around. Talking to Jim, he mentioned how much he loved puffins. So…puffins it is.
I wasn’t sure if I could pull this off but what’s the worst that could happen. Its only paint.
Once I was satisfied with the pattern, I got out a piece of tracing paper and traced the pattern onto the buoy.
It took a few days to paint. I’m not sure where it will end up but here it is…
And a close up…
Wrapping around to the second side…
On to the third side…
Close up of the boat.
The fourth side is just water and sky with a few birds.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to lately.
