Thanks Peter,
Chucks technique of doing the peel is definately the best for this type of effect.

The windows are very nice too. I just feel that they may lack a bit of contrast, since they are the same colour scheme as the walls.

Granted Frederic there is little colour contrast between the white window frames and the white walls, although the peel effect is actually subtlely different between the two components.
The contrast comes from the dimensionality and added depth of the windows.

This does not show well in a 2D picture, especially under my work lights, however, in person it has added definition and I am happy with the result.

It kinda looked that way to me too before with the flat walls shot straight-on ... with everything going "3-D" now, the play of light and shadows is coming thru and the windows show their shape and detail nicely. Looking good.

PS -- That's one of those "normal" things that drives us all crazy. At certain points, it's really hard to tell whether or not things "look right" and you just gotta go with your gut.


Cheers,

You're right, Dallas, about the thing looking very differently in the "3D-view".
Very nice progress, Karl.

Thanks for the kind comments Marty, Dallas and Frederic.

Some minor progress on the stairway and front porch. Almost time for the handrails.
