"To recreate the appearance of this set of oil drums with a tarpaulin cover, I started with a base coat, then applied layers of green and brown to reflect the aged look of the tarp-covered drums, making sure to allow for natural shadows and highlights. Subtle dry-brushing helped me highlight the texture, giving the effect of wear and exposure. Finally, a careful application of a matte varnish gave it a more authentic, weathered finish." - Stuart
