The Painting Continues

A group of volunteers got together this afternoon to continue working on the grotto at St. Leo's Church. We're far from being finished, but we made a lot of progress today.


Other than the work that I started on the rock directly in front, the picture above shows how the grotto looked prior to our painting the walls this afternoon.

We started to introduce the use of brown, black, and burnt sienna to break up the dull grays underneath. To the right of this picture, you'll see part of the altar. I kept referring to the altar as a fireplace because the bottom resembles a fireplace. The kids got a chuckle out of that.

I still have to add some green on the rocks near the fountain to resemble moss. The grotto will look good when all the painting is finished and we get the fountain working again.
