Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.

Time for another quick update.

Drybrushing is done and I've managed to make some additional progress. The decking for the large and medium bridges is base coated. I've also base coated the metal grating on all of the hills. Photos are below.

Metal surfaces were all base coated with silver craft paint. I then liberally applied a black wash that was made using Les' Wash Recipe. Once dry, I lightly drybrushed with silver craft paint.

On the high-traffic areas of the bridges, I applied a 50/50 mix of GW Gryphonne Sepia (I had an old pot that was still good) diluted with water. And additional drybrush of silver craft paint was lightly applied on top. The undersides of the bridges were painted with silver craft paint stippled with black wash.

There will be additional weathering later on which will be completed after I paint the pipe sections.

Here's the progress on the bridges.

That's all for now. More to come...
