Amazing what a little paint can do, huh? Today's picture shows that I have dry-brushed the window frames and wood-like areas and painted in the bricks by the front door. I've also shaded to give depth.You can see the wood beams and painted-on windows on the side. When a kit that I buy doesn't have downstairs windows cut out, I just paint them on.
And here is a close-up for more detail viewing.
Tomorrow I'll be adding even more detail to the window frames so that they look like old wood. More shading and highlighting, too.
