    Decided to paint a mural on the inside of my showroom doors. Valentino Rossi doing a wheelie. Just got it sketched out today.

    Painting will take a while.

    I like that. As a child, I had some talent towards art but I never really developed it. I just played with the pencils when I saw fit. I wished I had stuck with it thought and improved on what I already had.

    I am enjoying this thread.

    Only a wee bit of progress after several hours. Now I wont get much done as long as the weather is good as im into Haying season here at the farm for a while.

    Even whats there now still requires several more layers of colour, shading and hi lights to look the way it needs to . its still very one dimensional at the moment. For example, the big Monster "M"'s will need another darker shade of green added, the hands/gloves will need much more detail shading, as does the blue on the leathers and the bike fairings... it will be a long journey
