I found this building on highway 52 east of Indianapolis. The mural painted on the side caught my eye, if I where traveling the opposite direction it would have been missed. Photos where taken mid summer of 2007 on an overcast day with the clouds moving fast enough that every picture had a different tint. This wouldn’t have been a problem if I had taken one photo of the whole side instead of three and matching them up in Photoshop. I made a rough design of the front and side with the mural. Couldn’t get a good photo of the opposite side so I edited a copy of the first and flipped it horizontally. The back had what looked like a window and door filled in with concrete blocks. To fix these areas I used an edited copy of a front window and door. I tried a little layering to give it some depth, at this scale I’m not sure if it’s worth the extra effort, maybe more or thicker layers? The front has some tin molding at the top that is in very good shape. For this area I roll formed the paper between two bamboo skewers and added ends to maintain the shape. I tried to mix paint and match the color to finish the edges. This detail did add some three-D effect to the front. I’m not sure how the roof is constructed on this building, probably slops to the center with drains built in support columns. I made mine flat and afterwards I changed the design to set it in a little. It would be nice to know the history of this building. Maybe I’ll go back and see if there’s a local historian that can fill me in.
