The area around Port Rowan is pretty flat but after talking with Chris Abbott during a recent work session, we decided a low rise would look nice at the entrance to Port Rowan. It would help justify the sharp curve out of the Lynn Valley before hitting the straightaway between the orchards. And the rise would help hide the Stone Church Road scene across the aisle when visitors are looking north out of Port Rowan.
Having glued together stacks of foam board in this area to give me the basic shape, today I tackled it with carving tools. When I was happy with the rough shape, I spread a layer of Sculptamold over the area and topped it with paint and various ground covers. Later, I flooded the area with dilute Weld Bond glue and added static grass and some meadow flowers.
There’s still more to do, including the addition of bushes and trees. But the scene is coming together nicely.
