This is what you get when you recieve a Christmas gift that you don't know what to do with. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/plain.gif

You change the riverside winter scene that you've been planning and reconstruct that Piko wharf.  Then you add some street lights that you have for another project and an old gas pump saved for yet another project.  Add a fisherman.

Of course the scenery isn't in yet,  I'll work on the beach and the water somewhere down the road but it lights up a dark corner now. 



A few months back I never would have thought. :rolleyes:

The fish will bite - but he'd be wise to store up on pork and beans for a few months anyway. ;)

Is it just me or does that fisherman kind of look like Bubba from that angle?



That's the guy!

Sweet, can't wait to see it with water and sand.
Is that a backdrop that you bought?
Did you paint it?
Or was this scene shot outside during twighlight?

Funny how that goes.  Seems like in this hobby this sort of thing happens a lot. You end up with these odd-ball structures or other features and feel a need to somehow utilize them in the overall scheme. Kinda changes the scheme a bit, doesn't it?  Speaking of wharves, I'll be needing to do something about that when I begin my Phase III project which includes a riverside steamboat wharf.  It'll be interesting to see how this new project of yours develops.  Good luck.

This is very frustrating.  I've spent an hour trying to post two small pics from the web space but can only get one. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/crazy.gif

Anyway, the 'backdrop' is just something I painted on.  When I turn off the room lights in that part of the basement a small light goes on inside the building in the foreground and illuminates my sky as per....



That usually reflects enough sunset to keep the room in semidarkness.  Enough so you can see the details and still appreciate the street lights etc.

This is what that 'sunset' looks like under daylight conditions.  It's the same picture as above but with the house lights turned on.....





....and I have to give that beach some thought.  Do I want a typical weed filled prairie river beach or do I want something more park like?  Decisions.  Decisions.
