This is my version of a shed that was constructed by Marcel Ackle. I had Google translate his pages and then waded through the translations until I felt I understood the process he used. I will admit that I was skeptical when I saw that he used a set of kid's watercolors to color his wood, but I decided to give it a try. I liked the look of his model, but I decided in my version to try to make it look more like a shed found on a farm in Pennsylvania. It was my first attempt at coloring wood with watercolors. I like being able to vary the color of individual strips of wood. Comments or suggests are more than welcome.
