Almost done making the 'right wall'. Lots of curves. Its a bit odd architecturally, but it feels right for reasons I can't articulate. I like the way its working - sort of gestural architecture. Like if Arshile Gorky or Willem de Kooneing designed an interior. Or maybe more MacIntosh.

I just stained the thing in these pictures, so it looks quite dark and blotchy. When it dries, its nice and even; looks like cookie dough.

Pretty soon i'm going to be adding paint; very thin washes of brown and grey to reduce the grain, even out the appearance (a little more graphic and 'cartoony' looking) and make the wood look a bit dead and soggy.

The paint is also going to allow me to pick out details and emphasize parts that need it.
