A Right Old Carry On
Brewhouse Quay: There is still much to do with the layout is still evolving, and this is an example of spur of the moment model making.
The gate ‘to the rest of the world’ seen here in its embryonic stage, is the result of seeing just such a gate in the movie 'Carry On at Your Convenience' and thinking out loud "that's just what I need". Being able to ‘pause’ live video on a Sky + box allowed me to make a quick sketch of the various strengthening timbers. When I track down some rather nice PHD Design spear fencing lurking in my bits box, I'll be incorporating some of it popping out of the top of the stone wall either side of the gate, as well as poaching a few spikes to protrude actually out of the gate.
The spray painted backdrop through paper templates depicting a misty summer day, can be seen to good effect here. The textured effect is the result of photographing it under the hard overhead lighting from a domestic bulb in the dining room. Once proper softer layout lighting is in place it will look far smoother.
