Unfortunately the last photo is not the best. I took it outside with a longer lens. The first two were taken inside by a window with a shorter lens and they show the texture better. I really like the thick texture of the paint surface, I am using lots of modeling paste.
I enjoyed working from a sketch, it was much better working from a loose fun sketch than a photograph. I felt free to change things and I was surprised when I revisited the place how different it was in real life. My memory had taken on a life of its own and become more real to me. But no longer represented reality.
