Great project Paul, mad challenge of course but got a feeling it will be epic when finished!! :)How did you make the drawing for accuracy - grid, projector, freehand?
What in the world are you guys talking about?
@PaulB I hope you are not suggesting that I should paint with my elbows? @Summer I have shaky hands and am fumble fingered. The thumb and forefinger grip is too tiring and I lose control especially with the skinny handles. I hold the brush like a conductor holds a baton when I do large areas but this isn't good for detail work. When I get back to painting I'm going to stick the brush handle through a marshmallow and try that.
.... Just be patient. Don't look at how much is still to do. Just concentrate on one small section at a time and do each section as well as you can. You'll be surprised how quickly you'll seem get it done by not thinking about the end. ...
Given the scale of the beast I think your umbrellas and the awning will look just fine. I'd move on and then only re-visit them once you have the surrounding area filled.
