I had to miss a play date with Lidi last week
so she kindly played catch up with me today.

My painting skills haven't improved I'm afraid
so the artwork is all courtesy of the amazingly talented Lidi!
I watch what she does with a wiggle of the brush
but when I try to do the same thing
I just make mud.
thanks Lidi
 for doing my painting.

The bench will stay but the rest of
the loose items are only temporary.

The first wash is done on the plaster work,
the rocks yet to be done.


Paperclay Work Finished

 And some more painting done.

Lidi is not only very talented
she is a great teacher!
I made a muddy mess of painting the paving stones
and had visions of having to dig them all up
and start again,
but no,
Teacher showed me how to fix them!!

Those blue things on the cobblestones are the doors
for the back opening,
they need painting and detailing.
