This is a quick one. I was asked to make the facade of the Alamo chapel- the iconic view of the compound.
I decided the key to the look of the facade is the look of the pillars and the statues.
Here is a drawing of the famous building
The rest of the building was also covered in the clay and then carved when dry.
The final touch was painting. I used a base coat of yellow ochre washed with raw umber and then dry brushed with creams and sand/ buff colours to bring out the detail. The final weathering just dirties it up to make it lived in. The final result looks good and I have now been commissioned to do the rest of the building.
