You can see the wood texture being developed.

I haven't yet decided about the background and am leaving my options open.

Thank you.  This is a whole new, and looser, approach.  New and different techniques.  Someone posted a link to the Australian Programme; "Put Some Art In Your Life".

The 'rapid fire' 'shotgun' type of effect information dump reminds me of US military technical schools.  Picture a 2-1/2 inch fire hose open full and the high pressure stream of information has to be dealt with.

I'm fascinated to see what develops.

Thank you, all.  I, too, enjoys WIP's.  One can see how another person approaches a particular subject/topic and, maybe, think; "So that's how they took care of that problem".  :)
